My mother has been a widow since I was 4. I don't think she understands the sport much but she respects my decision. I do however help a lot around the house, pay her rent, plus take care of all of my own expenses, etc since the middle of my teen years. Her spouse on the other hand is a freak show where even a piece of tape near a lightbulb was enough to get him psyched that maybe someone was taping him (I know because this actually happened) so I've kept all my stuff well hidden. I also used the whole "therapy" thing on her, good way of taking out the stresses of the week without committing actual crimes.

If she wants, take her aside, sit her down and explain things in full detail even if you have to do so in English. If she walks away before the talk is done then tough luck for the both of you. Can't force someone to not wanna listen to what you have to say.
