My cousin was exactly like this with her daughter - but she was the one with the issues not her daughter! She just made it look that way. My friend's mother was always taking him to a psychologist when he was a kid, but she's a mental case, he is normal and fine! (She's a problem hoarder to boot - can hardly walk into her house through all the junk). My own mother did it to me my whole life as well but I put it all together a few years back and now have distance from her (and massive weight off my shoulders! She even told people I had anorexia when I was a teenager (I didn't!).
Anyway, I just recognise the behaviour with that pink mother and that's why I feel so strongly about it. Hope I'm wrong!
