My mom is just a cry baby.

Ok, my parents live in a small camper and I came down to visit. The plan was to set a tent out so I and the kids sleep in. They changed the plan, dad sleeps on the couch and me, mom and a child sleeps on the bed while the other sleeps on the floor. Dad isn't up and mom wants to go in the living room. Now she is crying, whining and everything because of it. She keeps whining stating "he needs to wake up." Mom has a short expand but still your grown and still act like a baby?

My mom has a lot of maturity issues as well. She's nearly 70 years old and loves to give the silent treatment during visits if she's not sufficiently entertained and catered to.

My mother is 70, is passive aggressive, plays the 'wilting wallflower' when it's convenient for her, and growing up thought withholding her love was an appropriate form of punishment. 

Additionally, her and my father have the expectation that it's my and my brother's responsibility to 'take care' of them. 


I think not.

Seriously, my mom needs to grow up and act her damn age. Next time I come down, I'm getting a camp site.

It's been my general experience that MOST people only become more and more solidified into their personality type. So when you're dealing with miserable people, your best bet is to, at the very least, not expect very much change if they're older. I know I've been waiting on my mom to mature and not constantly embarrass herself and everyone around her since I was a young child.

It's gets annoying to see a grown ass adult whine because of something stupid.

Hmm I wonder if she doesn't like living in a small camper and if maybe your dad not being awake was the last straw.

No, she says she likes the camper.

Hmm you're whining about her whining, and calling someone a grown ass adult, I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

So go in there and wake him up. I would. I wouldn't even care if he got pissed.
