Lol, it seems that Summer has a little daddy complex when she chooses partners. I read that it has advantages and disadvantages too. Its good because it indicates that her daddy loves her very, very much, she was his princess and she is even now( and she'll be always no matter how mature she gets). This gives her stability obviously and confidence.
On the other hand typical women with strong daddy complex tend to be too dependent on their male partner in a relationship or males in general( Joss Whedon might be an example)and they are repressing their femininity a bit( through Summer always voices that she is a girly girl). Through Summer is anything but a typical woman so this may or may not apply to her.
Through in all cases its still very good that her family plays such an active role in her life. It serves as an anchor to her which always there to cling to no matter what happens. And their support of Summer to let her do what makes her happy is very nice.
There are parents who wouldn't approve of Summer's job choices I think. Dancing and acting or other arts are tended to be looked down upon often saying thats not a proper job.
But the Glau family understood that Summer wants to do that and they always supported her in her choices ever since she was a little girl( other parents would have dismissed her wishes as childish fantasy and forced her to learn a more regular profession).
And it wasn't only approval but they are even pushing her when she is unsure what to do like in the case of the Cameron audition(through her sisters helped there too but thats just gave her even more support on top of her parent's support). I think a child couldn't want more from her parents when it comes to support. And Summer seems to repay that by making them proud and never crosses the line which'd embarass her family and she constantly tries to make them proud of her. And this agreement between them is our greatest luck I think.

I like it when she talks about watching Terminator movies with her dad and that he bought the movies for her so she can prepare for the role.
It indicates how much her family supports her in her work. I think thats the most important thing why our Summer is such a sweet and fantastic person and why she has such a strong resolve.
