          Woman Says She Needs Son To Respect Her As A Mother, ‘Not Like A Sister Or A Best Friend’


          January 11, 2019

          Isaac says he’s constantly “bumping heads” with his roommate, Christina. He says they fight about rent; get drunk and party together every weekend and hear too much about each other’s sex lives. Isaac says Christina is both his best friend – and his worst enemy. br>

          But Isaac and Christina aren’t just roommates. Christina is also Isaac’s mother.

          Christina says she had Isaac when she was just 15, and that she was “Young and unprepared to be a mom.” She claims he never respected her as a mother.

          Isaac, who says his grandmother raised him, acknowledges he looked at his mother as more of a sister than as a mom.

          “As I started to get older, I would tell my mom, ‘You can’t tell me what to do – you didn’t raise me,’” he admits.

          “I need Isaac to respect me as a mother. Not like a sister or a best friend,” says Christina in the video above.
