is my mother she would rather tolerate being moked in public than confront a person.
she plays music loudly rather than tell a person they're irrational.
and when she hasan opinion that even halfway controversial she waits till shes 10 feet away from the person who she wishes to say it to so they probably won't even hear her.
it disgusts me that she will do this and then try to stop me from expressing myself.
I don't mind getting into fights. I would rather have my bumps and breaks to show than keep my valid opinions to myself or cowardly say then under my breath.

Would you just allow someone(an adult) to pretend to be frinds withyour 8-9-10 year old only to exclude them (without having the decency to tell them to their face) because they imagine that you their parent has done something to you.
I wouldexpect an explanation a justification, for an adult not to hurt a child to get at their parent. or for them have the guts to explain their motivation to the child and see how rational it is then.
But as it is my mother is sitting around playing cat stevens on high.

i wouldnt say shes a coward at all. some people find that it s a waste of time to get into arguments, myself included on a regular basis with my brothers. also more often then not i will wait untill there is somthing hard and protective inbetween me and said brother to voice and opinoin that doesnt agree with theirs. does this make me a coward? pehapes, but then agin no one would really understand the situation, and im not saying you dont understand the situation, but you may not have all of the little details.

Petty arguments about inconsequential details are pointless. Ask yourself this: Will speaking your mind, and starting an argument or an awkward situation make any positive difference?

If the answer is no, then that's probably why your mother avoids making mountains out of molehills in those situations. Personally, I try to avoid getting into arguments unless it will change things for the better, which more often than not isn't the case (I always tend to get into them anyway... natch).

Could someone explain to me, because I really didn't understand the original post at all.

And that's not a valid reason in your eyes? So you're gonna bitch about it behind her back? It's her choice, leave it be.

I have to agree. Avoiding conflict is nothing to be ashamed of. If anything it should be praised. It takes a bigger person to walk away. What if she did blow up on someone and as a result there was a fight and she was hurt or even jailed? She is a mother; she has responsibilities to her children and herself. It is easy to be irresponsible when you donít have other people depending on you for their survival. Think of how different your life would be if mom ended up getting in a fight over something stupid and went to jail. Think about how different your life would be once she lost her job, and the state took her kids for being an unfit mother who canít hold her temper over incorrect food order at Burger King.

All she is doing in venting to you. Just like you are doing here. Your mom pissed you off and you came here to vent. In her case someone else pissed her off and she came to you to vent. If I were you I would take advantage of it and talk to your mom and get to know her. Life passes quickly and one day she will not be here anymore. Be careful what you take for granted.
