Timmy is an average kid that NO ONE understands. His parents are extremely addicted druggies who are very abusive and neglectful. He has no friends. Timmy is a repressed kid who's never been able to live normally. Also, Timmy has shown a tendency to be rather stupid and lacking, even for a 10 year old. He always gets Fs and is unable to deduce things using common sense. Not to say that he's as stupid as Cosmo or his parents, but he's definitely lacking in the common sense department.

That's why he imagines his mother there with him and hates her for not being alive with him; for not coming and making everything better when his daddy beat him; for leaving behind him as the burden of the family. And there is a reason why Crocker became a teacher: he longs for his childhood so badly, that he wants to be among kids, because they remind him of the childhood that he never got to have. And he made up some friends...
