my mom and i are very close, or so i thought. sometimes i feel like we don't spend enough time together; and i usually tell her this, but her response is all wrong, she never seems to understand my point. she has a new significant other and they've went out three weekends in a row this month. so i basically asked when were we gonna have our mother and daughter day since we haven't had one in a while. everytime i bring this up, she always yells at me, saying things like she's grown and she can do whatever she wants to and how i need to do more things with my friends. however, i do hang out with my friends; i guess she thinks i don't do it as much as i should. but what does going out with friends have to do with wanting to spend more time with her????? and everytime we have an argument about this, she always says ok, we're gonna hang out on such and such day, like that's really supposed to make me feel better. i shouldn't have to tell her when it's time for us to hang out and do what normal mothers and daughters do. and when we do hang out, it's only because i plan the outing. i thought this was every mother's dream, to have a daughter that wanted to spend time with them....... i didn't think there was a such thing as being too close to your parents; according to her, i guess it is. i would think that she would appreciate my attitude towrds her since her and my grandma (her mom) are not that close. maybe i should hang out with my friends more and pay less attention to her, then she'll start missing me, right? any thoughts on this??????

Well, geez I get what you mean. No, it's not wrong to want to spend time with her. I think it's crap.py that she'd rather hang out with some guy than with you....I'm sorry :(

maybe i should cut her completely off, i won't tell her what's going on in my life, and i don't wanna know what's going on in hers. i'll just act like i don't care anymore. this makes sense because she acts like she's annoyed by me.

She was probably greatly influenced by her own mother. You mentioned that the two of them aren't very close. Maybe that's why she's acting so closed towards you. You might want to try talking to her mom about this (if you two are close). Or else, maybe you could talk to the guy she's been dating. It's probably not such a bad idea to get to know the guy your mom has been spending so much time with... Good luck :)

I read this a while ago, thought i responded, and i finally realize...that i didn't!! lol
 
Anywayz, i think maybe your mom is having trouble...growing up. if you don't mind me saying. she still wants to do her own thing, have a bf, ya know. If anything, it's not a reflection on you, but on her. just know that no matter what, she (i'm going out on a limb here, jsyk) loves ya. :P
 
And i'm glad it's getting better.

Your mom should be happy you wanna spend time with her, no offence. Not a lot of kids these days wanna hang out with thier parents. Kinda messed up. But maybe should level it out, you know. One day hang out with her. Then hang out with your friends or something. Maybe she feels you're not giving her some space, which is kind of ironic, because that's what most teens want. Oh well. Hope everything works out between your mom and yourself. Moms are so important in our lives.

Haha yeah. I know some kids who are ridiculously rude to their parents, and it makes my heart ache. Not in all cases, but most, they do so much for us and it is so sad when people don't appreciate that. i mean, time away is well deserved every now and then. ;) But when kids tell their parents to shut iup or get out of their lives, it is so wrong. I would never say that to my mother.
