are your moms your bestfriends? can you share your secrets with them? tell if you have a crush and if someone is courting you. have fun with you and your friends? or is in good terms with your boyfriend or husband? my mom is stiff when i was in highschool and college. she gets mad when i tell her about my crushes and doesnt allow me to have boyfriends. she told me that i should finish school first. she dont allow me to go out with friends, i should stay home and do the chores..but little by little she is changing but its only since i got married... i married young because i became so rebellious to her. i was longing for freedom. but then i realize that she just love me so much she doesnt want to loose me that soon, but she did because i married young

My mom is very cool. Well she is my stepmom cause my real mother passed away when I eas 10. So dad married the 15 year old babysitter.......lol...... Now I am 23 and she is 28 and we are still the best of friends. She is the coolest. Now when I was a teen and she was grounding me, that was a different story. But now that I have 2 kids of my own I know why she had to punish me.

Or just hide it...

My mother and I never got along. Neither one of my parents wanted me. So the hate was mutual. The only person that I would confide in as a child was my brother. He is my best friend.

Yes I have to say that my mom is a cool mom! I tell her about my crushes, how feeling one of them is cause we think he knows I have a crush on him. The things he do to get attention. I tell her about the professor that I have a crush on, which turned out to be the cousin of our family friend whom she used to tutor when they were younger. I tell her about how irritated I get with my friends when they do such things. Yes... I tell her stuff. And I miss that closeness that we have, and I am excited to go back home. She gives me advice, and I can see that she gives a fair judgement, even if I complain about how my friends are acting towards not just me but other friends of ours, she tries to tell me to try to understand where she is coming from. She gives me unbiased advice. And for that I am thankful because I did not turn out to be a spoiled kid.

I really have trouble talking to about my mum about boys! I never ever admitted to having a boyfriend until she figured it out on her own! Haha.

my mom was the best... i couldnt talk to her about things like that, my dad was easier to talk to! but thats not the criteria of a cool mom... its who she is as a person and who she is to you... my mom loved me more than....... i love food! hehehe, but jokes aside... your mom always does whats best... imagine if your kid does to you what you did to your mom, i always think that way... i lost my mom when i was 16, and i will never be the same, so i aways tell people, love your moms no matter what, the saying "you dont know what you had untill you've lost it", that saying would feel like a million times a stronger slap if you (God forbid) lost your mom, so no matter what, apreciate her, treat her the way you want you kids to treat you no matter how you raise them, cause they could be against your ways... you never know...

my mother and i are very open to eachother.She rather wants me to tell her things than when i don't and feel bad.I can talk with her about all sorts of things.I also hang around a lot with her because we have such great times together. When i was younger (2-3 years ago) i had this time when i didn't do all this stuff with her.I had my friends and they where more important i thought,but now i have seen that my parents are the most important people in my life.It doesn;t have anything to do with being a cool mom,or being best friends with your mom.It's where you'll always feel save and where you can depend on.

My mom and I never got along too well when I was a kid. I never felt that I could talk to her about anything. We have a better relationship now. I can talk to her about almost anything. My daughter says that I am the coolest mom because she can talk to me about anything. She is 14 and I am as open and honest with her as I can be for her age level. I always have been this way with her. I never wanted her to feel uncomfortable with talking to me. She has told me that she feels that she can talk to me about anything. I hope that she and I can keep our relationship this way for the rest of her life.

you are like bang on target for me. it was like going thru my own growing years. my mom was never cool, nor is she now. i was never allowed to interact with neighbourhood children, my school bag was regularly seached, my friend's moms were contacted over phone and asked how i behaved in school (what other girls said about me,) and so on. i could never confide anything in her, and as for crushes, forget it. only bad girls looked at boys, good girls shouldn't even know that boys exist. by the time i was in college, i was a rebel of the first order. my first priority in life was to get a bf, no matter how the boy was or what background he came from. as a result, i too married early and that too, to a very poor boy from my class. but guess what, he's the best thing that has happened to me. being the same age group, we understand each other perfectly and are now the proud parents of a 7yr boy. we are the best friends for each other. but to tell you frankly, inspite of all the love & best intentions that my mom has for me, i dont like or condone the way she has brought me up. i was on the edge of the cliff in college and instead of my husband, if i had met a really bad person, my life would be in hell today. parents should never be so strict with their children, that children are forced to hide issues from them.

My mother passed away five years ago. I still think of her often and miss her. She was the first one that I would call whenever I needed a listening ear. I could talk to her about anything and she loved my husband as a son.

Well no, I wouldn't call my mom my best friend. There are some things I wouldnt dare share with her because she is my mom LOL i would share with my best friend but not with my mom, only on day to day stuff in general, but not about boyfriends, relationships and even our marriage. There are things she doesn't need to know about my life and i prefer it that way ;) however I do love her very much!
