Question by 結縁 Heemei: Headache on Mother’s day?
There is a problem for me on Mother’s day, I can’t seem to please my mother with anything. Ever since I’m young, my mother has a habit of compare her children presents on her birthday and Mother’s day.
I remember one year, I bought her a bouquet and a card, she sighed and said my sister bought her a gold necklace. Another time, I gave her 100 dollars for her to shop, she told me my sister gave her 500 dollars for her birthday, so now you know why I’m dreading..
So my question is how do I face another year of guilt, how should I repond this time, if my mom does that again?
I’m a mother myself, I would never have the heart to ask my son for anything, anything he makes for me, I’ll be happy
Here’s another thing behind my mother’s displeasure for me,
She wanted me to marry a man whom he promised that he will sign over a properties as soon as we got wed. I sort of ran away, because I didn’t love the guy

If she says something like “your sister gave me $ 300 (while you gave her $ 50) say, “great! now you have $ 350 to spend!” Or if it’s the flowers and necklace, say “You must be so happy with your flowers and jewelry!”
Be positive and make whatever you say seem like both presents are fantastic. It’s not like she will come right out and disagree, you will have backed her into a corner, lol.
And if by some chance she basically says “your gift sucks” then say, well next year i wont put you thru a bad gift and I will just give you a card.” Then walk away!
