As the parent with the most direct involvement with her two children, Daisy does hold some responsibility for her son’s disappearance. When the principal at Donny’s high school calls her and requests a meeting, Daisy feels as though she is the one being reprimanded rather than her teenage son. Defensively, she tells the principal Mr. Lanham, “It isn’t that we’re not concerned… we’ve done what we could, whatever we could think of… How are we to know what to believe?” In these lines, Daisy begins to show just how suggestible she is.
