Vladek would serve him the same meal over and over again until his son ate it. Anja wanted to excuse Artie. Vladek was still haunted by his time in the holocaust where everything, including food, was scarce. He projected his insecurities onto his child. Anja just loved her son and did not bring the same emotional baggage into her parenting.
