I think it’s easy to blame Monica for everything because she left, and admire Frank just a little bit for at least sticking around. This is especially so when Lip tells Ian “You know how dad’s a total fucking asshole? Well turns out he’s the good one” From the children’s perspective this is entirely understandable because their mom who is supposed to love and take care of them left them. However this ignores a few things, mostly that Monica has a serious mental illness and their dad is an alcohol abuser and enabler.
We don’t get to see much of Monica before she returns for the first time in the show but from what we can see, she is in a much better much healthier state than when she is with Frank. With Frank she is skipping her meds, making rash decisions, and diving back (heavily) into drug/alcohol abuse. She ends up making so many mistakes because she is not thinking things through long term, that she falls into a deep depression because to her she was only trying to do good. This deep depression leads her to attempted suicide.
Suicide is not a selfish act and attempted suicide needs to be taken very seriously. This is why Monica decides to stay in a program to help her get better. If she doesn’t get better, she cannot hope to be a good parent. However, Frank is responsible yet again for taking Monica away from what she needs to get better.
To Monica, getting out of her relationship with Frank, was about life or death. The thing that keeps her tethered to Frank is her kids. She cannot leave Frank without leaving her kids. She does not have the power to just take them and go and the kids would likely be worse off with her wherever she went. She is not in the right place mentally to take care of her children. Of course, this does not change the fact that she left her kids but if she did not leave Frank, she would likely have died.
This is not to say that those suffering from bipolar disorder cannot possibly be good parents, it’s just a risk factor in being a neglectful/abusive parent (unintentionally). For example, a woman next door to my house has severe bipolar disorder. She is not allowed to be alone with her children and her own mother takes care of the kids most. Does this mean that she’s a bad person because she cannot walk with her daughter around the neighborhood without being watched? No. She has a serious mental disorder that inhibits her ability to meet the minimum requirements of good parenting without help…and she does get help.
Frank is no help to Monica and certainly no help to his kids. I know it is easy to blame Monica for everything because she left, but Frank did just as much if not more damage.
