    I still get advice from my mom. I am 48 years old and she still gives unwanted advice. I guess she always will. Do you too have this experience?

      Shealy, I'm 56  and my mother talks to me sometimes as if 12 again- they never stop worrying and careing about you no matter how old you are.

    Once a mom, always a mom. They can't help it. Count your blessings. My mother used to rearrange my refrigerator contents.

    yes advice given freely and i am 50! Mind you I found myself advising my eldest today so perhaps i will end up like my mum- just sit back and enjoy- After my mum has been to stay we have to find everything again!

    I like my mums advice, my dad can come across as a nag however, it all depends on what type of person they are

    I guess my mom wasn't exactly the advice giving type...or maybe the problem was she didn't exactly communicate with me.  Anyway...now I'm the one giving advice and my adult daughter hates it!  lol  She also doesn't like it that I call her my child.  hmm  My response?  "Well, you're not my adult are you?"

    My mom doesn't give advice. She just loves me. Once in a great while if I ask for it, she'll offer something.

    There was huge drama and upset growing up all the time. I love my family because they grew beyond all that. We don't communicate more than once or twice a year. However, when we do communicate or get together, it's with love, acceptance, and happiness. It's a joy to get together.

    I never knew I had a great family until I turned 50 (I'm 54). And my mom is a very large part of the reason.

    no...only if I ask or basically if I want to get a different perspective on something...she's from a very different generation and her personality is very different from mine.  I think she learned a long time ago to be careful with some of her advice to me. smile

    She's always there for me however.  And I truly appreciate that!

    I am old enough to have teen aged grand children and yes my mother still has an opinion about everything I do. I would not have it any other way.

    I have decided it is just part of the 'rules' - sometimes I bite my tongue because I know I'm going to get advice but then on another level, I think it is an indicator that she truly does care about me and love me that she takes so much time to worry and say something.  BTW, I'm going on 57 - and she is 81 - and she obviously still thinks she needs to impart her wisdom.  It is all good and I only hope one day I remember all that she said that was wise or good advice!
