How do you talk about the biggest mistake of your life to your mom?

Report as

Its really according to how your mom is girly, I hope for u she is understanding and gentle with u. first ask her to have empathy for u before u start. ( put herself in your shoes). tell her to pretend she is u approaching her right at that moment with this important thing and that right then, she is her terrified daughter coming to her. thats what i always do when my kids come to me. i try to feel what they are feeling. then take a deep breath and spit it out. Being a mom I can tell u, she will always love u no matter what u have to tell her.

I am very emotional.

Oh I know the feeling, I'm the same. I just take deep breaths before I start talking.

I dont think a deep breath would be enough. It's a really long story so it would take a lot of time. what am i to do?
Report as
Start a positive conversation with her, and slowly work your way to what you have to tell her.

Are you sure cause she is really very strict
Report as
No, she may need to brace herself. Don't play little games just say "mom can we please talk about something serious?" and go sit down with her. Not "I got an A in science! And I ...."
Just do it.

Btw, I am a mom who was very strict also. My kids discussed everything with me. First I'd get a bit upset, then we'd talk.

I don't think that will work. She's very strict.

if you can, take her out somewhere, that way she will be least likely to yell at you in public. just tell her you need to tell her something. tell her and then say how truly sorry you are. best of luck!

Oh sweetie it's hard because you feel you disappointed them. Maybe you did BUT.... She is your mother. She loves YOU unconditionally. That means she will get over it! She will be on your side. She will help you with your problem and be there for you as long as she lives. Just do it.

If is was a very serious school matter then?

Butter her up with how well you have done in certain areas, and then lay into the bad.
Report as
Do you think it will work even if she is very strict?
