Answers
Elphaba seems to get very little attention from her mother, who is essentially a drug addict. Her father is mainly too absorbed in his work as a minister to pay much attention to Elphaba and feels very guilty about her appearance. However, Nanny makes an effort to care about Elphaba and ensures that she has plenty of playmates in her youth. She also seems to be fond of Turtle Heart.
