Thelma please can we discuss mothers that make excess demand from their children. Right from my uni day mumsi started demanding and she didn't care how the money came. It started from recharge cards and small moey to sew cloth. Then she will complain about not having enough for my younger ones. I helped out with their pocket money occasionally. I had to look after myself too. Besides school fees daddy didn't do anything else so I had to provide for myself and this meant pay for books, hostel accomodation, food, and transport and ofcos buy clothes. I dated two married men back then to take care of myself n my siblings but after school I stoppd dat and I told my siblings dat they were on their own, they too already were in Uni so at least they had become adults. The problem is my mummy's demand never ends. She doesn't have money but she wants to wear designer clothes, she wants to use expensive phones even when she does not know how to operate them, she wants to keep up with her rich friends. My job does not pay much but I still had to buy her a blackberry Z10 last month because she saw her friend using it, she refuses to travel by road if her friends are going by air. This morning she called me and asked for money for facials. Do you know that she does not know what facials is. I asked her what is facials and she said that her friend said she went for facials in lekki, I should find out where they do the facials in lekki and send her money to pay for it and for transport. I don't give her everything that she asks every time but I do most times bec I love my mother so much, we are very close and she is very sweet to us but her demands are too much and she does not even ask where I get the money from. My dad is late and my siblings are boys so I don't have anybody in my family to complain too. I am afraid that when I get married she will start demanding from my husband bec she has already started hinting that i must marry a rich man or I must marry a generous man. I feel like I am the only person she has so I don't want to let her down but how do people handle mothers like mine?
