Joyce Byers From Stranger Things Teaches A Class On Parenting

Joyce Byers from Stranger Things teaching a class on parenting doesn’t seem like the most optimal idea. Despite the great acting throughout the last two seasons you’ll have to remember that Joyce has been a wreck no matter if Will has been there or not. When he’s not there she’s out of her mind with worry, when he’s there she’s overprotective and tries to keep track of him as much as possible. There’s really no medium setting with this woman, it’s either all the way to crazed and panicky or all the way to, well, just panicky. She doesn’t have an off switch unless you count when she’s asleep, and even then she seems capable of flying awake at the drop of a pin.

Honestly you can’t blame her completely since her son was taken by an extra-dimensional monster and was attempting to contact her via Christmas lights. And when he was returned he still wasn’t quite the same as he started acting kind of funky right before he came under the possession of a dark force that was using him like a looking glass. So what’s it going to be like in season three then? Is she going to finally calm down and be a halfway decent mother or is she going to crack down even more and not let Will out of her sight? That might be difficult to explain if she feels the need to sit outside of his school and wait for him every day, or simply has to go out with him and his friends wherever they go.

Have you ever managed to notice in films or TV shows that the parents whose kids are abducted tend to be seen as crazed and out of control at times? Obviously if your kid is missing you’re not going to be all together at any given moment but it also doesn’t seem likely that you’d be falling apart at the seams since this would only make matters worse. Yes, a parent would no doubt be a nervous wreck waiting for their child to come home, but hopefully someone would be able to calm them down just a bit and get them to continue their life in a manner that would allow them just a shred of normalcy to keep it all together. Joyce has Jonathan, but he doesn’t seem capable of doing much more than crushing on Nancy and getting in Steve’s way the first season, while in the second season he’s still all about crushing on Nancy since Will’s back.

He’s not the worst big brother, in fact he’s a very good big brother, but he’s not capable of reigning Joyce in when she really needs to calm down. Can you imagine this jittery woman trying to tell you how to parent your kids?Even when she’s fairly calm Joyce seems like a worrier and not quite fit to be standing at the head of a classroom. You might learn how to have a breakdown and keep making it worse, but that seems like the extent of it.
