Sarah has always been protective of her mother, Laurie and it looks like her anxiety is getting worse when it comes to thinking about her mother's health. In the previous episode, the viewers got to see Sarah rushing to Laurie's house in the middle of the night as she feared something had happened to her. 

Unable to reach her on the phone, Sarah decided to take matters in her hand and rushed her to place. Fortunately, Laurie was fine and had dozed off on the couch. However, the situation led Sarah to think of ways in which she could keep an eye on her mother without worrying about how or what she was doing.

In the latest episode (July 19), Sarah came up with the idea of installing a baby monitor at her mother's place. Sarah tried to justify her actions by stating that she is often worried about how her mother was doing and this was the best way for her to not be anxious. She further added that the stress was slowly starting to affect her relationship with Miguel.

Miguel did not seem impressed with Sarah driving to Laurie's place in the middle of the night as he feared it was not safe. To make sure that her relationship is not affected, Sarah thought having a baby monitor would be the best way for her to feel calm and relaxed. Even though Laurie was not amused by this idea, she decided to go with it for Sarah's sake.

Once the monitors are installed, Sarah made sure she watched her mother and even reminded her to drink water. Fans did not think this behavior was healthy and were quick to comment on it. One user wrote, "Sarah needs a therapist to help her cope with her mom’s illness and her anxiety," one user wrote.

Another added, "Sarah needs to get her mom a Life Alert button and an Apple Watch. That's plenty of monitoring." One viewer added, "Wanting to install cameras to monitor your mother is a bridge too far Sarah. This isn't healthy at all, Sarah seems like a sweet young lady, Laurie needs to push her to live her life more, and not worry so much about her."
