Which AMC Drama’s Kid Has the Worst Parents?

After seeing young Sally Draper down a Seconal, it occurred to us that while AMC’s current roster of hour-long dramas may not seem to have all that much in common, there is one unifying trait that bonds the lives of Don and Betty Draper, Walter and Skyler White, Detective Sarah Linden and Rick and Lori Grimes: They all love to neglect their children. Not since the heyday of the desperate, late-season new baby/orphan story lines of our childhood (where are those other Full House twins now?) have there been so many unwanted TV kids trying to stay out of their parents’ ways.
