Patty Duke was an irritating character
If you have ever seen episodes of The Patty Duke Show, you will know that the character that she played was utterly self-centered, self-indulgent and manipulative, in addition to being very fast and loose with the truth. And yet her parents indulge her on ever side, and she is somehow made to appear to be a "normal" teenager. Well, maybe so if that is the way parents let their children be; but no parent who would let his children be like that would be a good parent, in my book.
