Positive Momma's Boy

This topic originated under Trope Talk, where it was suggested that moving here would be more appropiate.

I've been looking over the descriptions for Momma's Boy and Daddy's Girl, and was struck with this thought: What do you call a mother-and-son pair whose relationship and interactions are more like the father-and-daughter pair in "Daddy's Girl"? Does that still fall under "Momma's Boy"?

    The closest thing we have to this is Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas.

    There's no reason that Mommas Boy can't be positive. I would fix the description of it. It shouldn't be only negative. After all:

    I'm a mama's boy; I pity the foo' who ain't one!"
    -- Mister T

    I don't know about you, but I wouldn't mess with Mr. T.

    True; so how do we do the fix? I'm somewhat new to this, FYI.

    On another note, Shinji Ikari in the happy AU reality depicted in the TV ending, a few manga and at least one dating sim comes across as somewhat of an example of a positive Mommas Boy, IMO.

    Go to the Mommas Boy page and edit the description.

    We believe in Wiki Magic here :)

    I know how to edit. XD I just can't come up with a good way to phrase the concept.

    I put in an edit; feel free to adjust as necessary.

    Okay, how does it look now?
