Something tells me that she wouldn't give a flying hoot what you think :).

I hate it when I see parents pushing their kids to acheive their owns ends - "to be proud of him at dinner parties" and the like - makes me sick. My mother ruined my childhood by pushing and pushing me into finance as a career when all I was interested in was science.
Eventually I rebelled, quit all but one economic exam and sat all my science exams - told her to ++++ off, and stop making my life a misery.
Saw my mother in May this year - first time for 5+ years - I think finally she has started to get the idea of just how much I hated her for what she had done.
Okay - not sport - but similar. Hell, there is no way I would play/do a sport if I wasn't getting anything out of it.
Print this out and give it to your mother. Get her to PM me if she has questions. That makes me SO mad.
