My sister who is 17 is graduating next month. My sister is taking me, my husband, my mom and dad to her senior dinner, My mom is freaking out because my dad is a "recovering" alcoholic, they have been divorced for 16 years. She doesnt think that my dad deserves to go to the senior dinner, so she told my sister that if she really takes him that she is not go to go. I think that this is riduculous, its my sisters dission, its her graduation not my mothers! My mom thinks that everything needs to revolve around her.
Now mom isnt even talking to my sister because she is mad about the whole thing. I tried to talk to my mom about it and all I kept hearing was I dont want this and mememememe!!!!! Ahhhhh! Its starting to get really old. When my husband and I were talking about our wedding she even told me that my dad didnt deserve to walk me down the aisle and that she did. She got so mad at me when I told her no. I dont get it?

I'm sure your mom is full of unresolved hurt about her ex, your dad. BUT she needs to step aside and let what goes on between father and his kids. If your mom misses out, then she is the one losing out. You can't fix her. She is being selfish, but has her own internal reasons. I say go, support your sister and don't beg mom to come. Hopefully, she'll make the right decision.
