My controlling mum is always so unwelcoming towards my girlfriend

DEAR DEIDRE: MUM has always been controlling and is unwelcoming to my girlfriend.

If I stay at my girlfriend’s, my mum guilt-trips me as if I am leaving her for good.

If my girlfriend comes to mine, Mum is unpleasant to her.

Mum is 39 and separated from my dad. I’m a lad of 18 and I have a sister who is 15.

My dad and grandparents really like my girlfriend and approve of our relationship.

Why can’t my mum?

DEIDRE SAYS: It can be hard for parents to see someone become their child’s number one and to let go when they have been focused on parenting for two decades.

Look for chances to tell your mum how great she is and how much you love her but be clear you are keeping your relationship with your girlfriend – though you two must comply with the latest Covid rules.

Encourage your mum to find interests and hobbies of her own now that a bit more free time should be opening up.
