Our expert says:
I think its sad that any young person is so lacking in inner resources as to find themselves with nothing to do during recess, due to a lack of money. I'm an old curmudgeon, but I occupied myself happily and usefully through any time-off, without needing to spend any money to do so, and at least spending very little. Its sad that kids have been encouraged to see fun as needing cahs, and as exclusively revolving around clubbing, parties, and so on. Nothing wrong with those activities as such, but really limiting if they see these as the ONLY way to have fun.
I'm sure the kids usually go off on their own amusements without feeling any need to take mom along, which is healthy - why does she feel these adult kids need to come along with the pair of you ? There used to be a great old music-hall song about romance-killing, called "And her mother came, too".
You're not selfish, she is being blinkered and unreasonable, even if for really nice reasons.
