Mint Mogul

I would give a slight edge to the crazy and obsessed Momzilla to getting her child to the point of success, but a crazy and obsessed Momzilla who fails to impart an internal pursuit of exellence in her Momzillee may be thwarted by her child in the very moment of success. Like in the Cutting Edge.

Don't forget that many professions have Momzillae. I just learned of an Olde Tyme Momzilla -- Anna Lloyd, who purchased Froebel blocks for her as-yet-unborn son, Frank Lloyd Wright, so that he could become a famous architect.

And that worked out pretty well, though he did fritter away some success due to personal life turmoil and financial mismanagement.
