Artemis' mother is unable to deal with Artemis' father's absence.  She and Artemis have been led to believe that her husband and Artemis' father is dead.  I don't want to give it away, but Artemis' dad does show up again later on...then his mother makes a miraculous recovery.  Right now, she is suffering from massive depression and unable to deal with reality without her husband.  Therefore, Artemis has free-rein of the household and is able to cook up all his wacky schemes.
