It seems as if this is showing just how Max’s moms are having difficulty with knowing how to explain these sorts of things to Max.
I won’t say it’s necessarily because there is not a male parent present.
Because heterosexual parents also often don’t know how to explain it to their child in a way that is unique to them.
Each child understands it in their own time and has to learn it in their own way.
Neither one of Max’s moms appears to be taking on the role of a male fatherly figure like some same sex couples do and it does make you really wonder how will he see the world as he grows up.
Max’s blonde haired mom is obviously his biological mother.
My guess is that probably she got into a bad and possibly abusive relationship with Max’s father and she left him and it’s possible that the abuse left her so messed up that she felt safer afterwards with another woman instead of another man and she feels like she can relate to other women better than men.
Although it’s possible that she discovered her true identity during the relationship with Max’s father and just left him.
The ex spousal abuse theory could also explain why Max is so quiet and stays to himself a lot.
The fact that Max still has his real mother paints many uncomfortable theories.
but could Max also be secretly uncomfortable with the living situation of having two mothers?.
He’s not the type to tell others what’s on his mind at all.
they seem to make him very uncomfortable when they get excited and dump their ideas on him all at once.
there’s too many possibilities and I think he went to Voltina because she’s calmer despite being an electric element type dragon.
And she’s a female character who might know better how to help with this issue with Phoebe.
I’ve always wondered if Max can touch Voltina and not get shocked.
