omg I don't get along with my mom she so corney and she's 53 (she had me late) and i'm a teen. This sounds stupid but this is about to happen very soon. My mom wants to go back to college and by the time she will graduate she will be 58 she will almost retire by than. I don't care what u say, but that is retarted really talk about embarassing. My mother doesn't know what to do with her life. She is already busy now with cleaning houses,working for a friends horse ranch,ect. she is in pain all the time and complains a lot and acts like a child. be honest tell what you think
well she just walks a minture horse around the block not that hard there's another woman the shovels the shit. But when she is done graduating she will be close to being able to retire. makes no sense why now
um for the most part i agree with helms,she is human too and thus probably wants to experience life even if its not for a job maybe she wants to be able to say she went to college,or hell she could do it so she could help you in school
but otherwise, quit being a selfish whiny little pecker,she wants to go back to school and gain a higher education good on her, bad on you, have more respect for your mother damn

I don't think that's at all stupid of your mom. She has every right to want to better her own life and the life of her family. In fact kudos to her, she knows what she wants and she's gonna go for it. So who are you to say that her having some ambition is retarded? And how exactly is it embarrassing? I really don't see that as something to be embarassed about. I'm sure she would greatly appreciate it if her daughter would support her and stop being so selfish. And as far as the whole retirement thing, my grandmother is still happily working fulltime at 70 years old. So your mom might not necessarily retire at the normal age of retirement.

my mom is about that age. its nothing to worry about. if she takes care of herself theres no reason for her to not be around when you're late middle aged, so if thats an issue to you dont let it be.
anyway, it sounds like she isnt very happy with her life. rather than feel embarassed by her, why not try to support her, or ask her whats wrong? just because shes an adult doesnt mean shes not entitled to feel unhappy and let it show. although, if shes neglecting you as a result, thats also an issue. perhaps try family counselling.
i dont get along with my mum either, but my best friends mum is in her 50's and went back to college to study english and history along with being a nurse. and she's really enjoying it.
if this is what your mother wants to do then i think you should suppport her and dont give a shit what others think.
if she's just doing it to fill her time, then try and talk some sense into her and mabye look at getting her a steady job perhaps that she might enjoy, to fill her time.
my parents are separated over 4 years now (you cant get divorced right away in ireland) and my mum didnt know what to do with herself when she left my dad.
so she went back to college to become a holistic therapist. she is now a part-time holistic therapist and loves every second of it.
so try and help your mum find what she loves.
be supportive (even if she is being a pain!)
i hope this helped, and excuse the spelling!

if your moms happy with whats shes doing, whats the harm in that? age is just a numberin my opinion. my moms 49 and she regrets not going to law school, she says shes too old for it now and it really pisses me off. id say all the power to her. but thats just me
