Remlik disagreed with the rating and said:
I would need more detail than that. It seems to me that Betty is almost always talking about her ex-husband. Maybe they have conversations about her kids, but that's as far as it goes, IIRC

Pam and Betty definitively have conversations about their chidden including about Susanna, Betty's daughter.
Susanna and Steph (Trent's daughter) - as we as their friends who are given names too (Laura, Katy) - do talk about boys, but also have (brief) conversations about things like "we're going to the beach."
Rating is absolutely correct.

This movie shows how the kindness of a stranger can affect this lonely, miserable boy following the divorce of his parents.
