What you say is very true. I prefer to say it a little differently:
Felix didn't "have" to grow-up in Ward and June Cleaver's house hold.
What a horror that would have been for Felix.
All his initiative and creativity would have been smothered, and stifled. It would have killed him.
Felix’s mother was a good and kind woman. However, she was no angel, she slept around. Felix loved her, and she loved Felix.
