Winnie's Family

Character Analysis

We don't have much dirt on Winnie's family—her mother, father, and grandmother—because they just don't get much screen time. The most important thing to remember about them, though, is that they're totally different than the Tucks: the Tucks' house is messy and their mealtimes are super casual, whereas the Fosters run a tight ship. But even though Winnie feels trapped at the beginning, she does choose to stay with her family in the end.
