With the help of their attorney father, Steven and Kathryn Miner of Barrington unsuccessfully sued their mother Kimberly Garrity for "bad mothering" [PDF] following their parents' 1995 divorce. Did she shove hot sauce down their throat? No. Did she learn parenting tips from Joan Crawford? No, not exactly. The two (now adult-aged) children claimed that Garrity caused emotional distress by failing to include a cash gift with birthday cards, enforcing curfews, and changing her last name when she later remarried.
