My mom tells me I am fat and could afford to lose ten pounds. She ask when I am packing for this weekend and tells me what to wear to my sister in law's baby reveal party. Come on I am 32 and married. I don't need to be controlled or told what to do or how to leave my life.

My parents were the same, telling me I should divorce my husband and marry a rich guy. They have tried to tell me how to raise my children. I moved out of state and they are no longer controlling my life-its amazing! If you want to stay where you are then put your foot down and tell her it's your life to live, not hers.

I am also an adult daughter who has mom living with me after dad passed and instead of thinking it is control she uses (cause that just irritates her me calling it this), I now look at it as experience talking, which at my age compared to her age, I lack . . .

Mothers sometimes never cease to make our lives a living hades. Mothers think they are helpful, but sometimes they are just very rude. And honestly, mothers need to be told that. I have told my mother that some of the things she says are very very hurtful, and we had a big long chat about it. You never get anything done until you do it yourself.
