dude..... love your mom while you have her. she just wants to spend some time with you, be grateful. a lot of us have parents who wanted nothing to do with them.
Yes, but it should be time spent doing something they both want to do. Also, not letting your child do anything if they don't do what you want first is abusive. If the mom wants to spend time with the kid, she could try to find another activity to do together and take karate lessons by herself or with someone who's interested too.
Life is not always fair, and there is nothing wrong with putting your children in SELF DEFENSE classes (an essential life skill). I highly doubt any activity that actually involves spending time with this childs parent is going to be accepted. And as for abuse..... being grounded for not listening is called CONSEQUENCE, not abuse. I'm so damn sick of everyone throwing that term around for just about anything!!!! Get real.
