What is your opinion on why Norma seems to trust emma and basically pushes Norman towards her in the first season?

I think I said this one or two weeks ago: Norma likes Emma because she’s what Norma would call a “nice girl”. Unlike Cody or Bradley, she’s sweet and innocent, she’s not a “slut” and she’s not a “bad influence” on Norman. She’s not trying to take Norman away from her and (at the risk of sounding insensitive) even if she were it wouldn’t be for long because of her short life expectancy.
