Mama's reaction to Walter's questioning where she's been all day illustrates her place as the head of the family.
MAMA: You know better than to question me like a child, Brother.
Mama is the caretaker of the family, which includes Walter.
MAMA (putting her finger on his nose for emphasis): She went out and she bought you a house! (Talking to Travis)
Walter is the spoiled son....
WALTER (bitterly): So that's the peace and comfort you went out and bought for us today!
