My Mum

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I wanna start by saying I've never been amazingly close to my Mum, but it's got worse lately. Sure, I'm a teen, it happens. But at the mo she is really unsupportive of me. I want to go into medicine, but she keeps trying to put me off. I know it's a lot of work. I know it's difficult. Hell, I know that I could earn more money in Law. But the fact still stands, I really wanna do it. But she's really disapproving. I don't know how to talk her round as I'm so not used to talking to her. And she was really taking the piss outta me when I said I needed extra help. You see, I thought she would support me with that as the only aspect of my life she ever takes note of is my grades, and I want to get what I could, which is really aiming high at 7 A*'s and 3 A's. I need extra help. But she laughed at me. And when I told her what I wanna do at A-level, again she didn't understand. What can I do to talk her round?? She already thinks (or knows) I think of her as a bad mother due to some recent events...

    I was having some problems with my my mum recently, we never saw eye to eye, etc but i got quite ill and since then she's been really lovely.
    You gotta stick to your guns, after all it is your life, but don't write her off completely, it might just take time and your perserverence to bring her round to your ideas.

    Stand your ground, and eventually she may see that you are serious about this. Try and talk to her again about it at a later date, but until then don't lose heart.
    As for extra help - why not talk to another relative that you get on with, one of your teachers, or even one of your close friends' parents.

    Good Luck

    I have never had a good relationship with my mum, things are now at there worse and I don't think they will ever get better.
    As harsh as this sounds but, I don't really care, cos she has put me through so much.

    I think you should stand your ground, don't let your mum inforce life changing decisions on you, if she is a good mum, she will be happy for you in the end. (Which I really do hope for you).
    In the meanwhile, chin up!
    Don't let anyone stop you from doing your chosen career, cos at the end of the day, it's you doing the job, not them.

    I hope everything works out for you.
    Let me know how everything goes.
