Acting like the perfect family to fuel a parent’s ego.

    Whenever I go out with my parents I feel like I have to act like we are the perfect family just to keep my mum from getting annoyed and I feel like I need to just act out her fantasy of having the perfect family to fuel her ego and make her feel like she’s a good mum. When I don’t act like she does she just screams and shouts about how much of a bad kid I am and it can get pretty bad..going out with her makes me feel so drained and depressed. I can’t stand the acting because we are not the perfect family and she refuses to acknowledge how much of a bad parent she is.
