Helen, Daria's mother, has the tendency to put more work into her career as a powerful lawyer than in raising her two children, leaving her clueless about their lives, and her husband's life. However, Helen is there when her daughters need her the most, even though most of her attempts to be a good parent end up falling through.
Helen is strongly for women's rights and tends to not think too much of men in general. Her overpowering personality shows through in her dominance of her husband and the lead she takes when it comes to parenting.
