Doesn't she want the best for her child and do anything with humility in order to give the child a life of their own? What happens if the mother who is 90 now and the daughter is 65 if the mother should live to be 100? Who knows what physical condition the daughter will be in when she reaches mid 70's? Is this a generational thing that elderly mothers don't ask their sons for help if they have daughters? And then it is expected of the daughter or the mother will continue to manipulate and tell the daughter how horrible she is and that she didn't raise her right really laying it on heavy bringing the daughter to despair. I certainly don't want that for my son and refuse to be a burden to his family. Why can't older parents just realize that they had their life, however bad or good it was and give that same opportunity to her daughter? I am clueless. If I have to call Social Services to get her to realize what she is doing....well...that is absolutely the most desperate attempt in order to be free to begin a life of one's own.
