Family problems with mom - September 20th 2009, 03:10 PM

This problem spans over many years and probably has no way of fixing it, but is there any way to spare the damage to other people? Let me explain what I'm talking about.

See my mom is generally very unhappy with the whole of my dad's side of the family. She hates going for any social events involving my relatives.

On my mom's side, they are all pretty distant thanks for much fighting and rivalry among the siblings. So she hardly meets up with anyone from her side of the family.

In addition, as my mom gave up her job to look after me (I am now 17) and to work for my dad from home, she hardly goes out to socialize. She mostly works and that's about it, as she turns down invitations from her friends to go overseas, and declines to go on holiday with the family as she claims someone needs to take care of the family dog.

Anyway, whenever we have a family gathering or event of some sort, my mom goes all crazy and gets very upset. My point is that she stomps around the house, and when I'm in it it's very unpleasant.

My next point is that whenever I go out/come home late she gives me a black face, says I don't care about her and just go out partying.

So anyway. Is there any way in which to spare myself the pain of all this? Because there is absolutely no way in which I can think of getting my mom to reconcile with my relatives at all.

I'm kinda tired of her controlling me and my life, and basically to the point where I also have no social life like her and stay at home all the time.
So please, any help or suggestions are welcome!
