Nooo? I think he has to work hard so he can develop proper work ethics and skills to further advance in the working workd to successfully land a decent job to provide for himself.

I agree with you about special treatment, but OP could've been a pretty good worker. A friend of mine works at his mom's bookstore and she threatens to fire him all the time. He's 22, but she says she'll fire him if he tries to move out.

I have to disagree about the special treatment portion. Nepotism isn't uncommon, but often times family members ride each other harder than the average employee. It's a two way street, special treatment isn't always a good thing.

Amen. I work in a family business which so happens to be owned by MY mom, and that's what I remind myself on a daily basis before I get snippy with her. OP should have been glad to have a job!

You think it's better to coddle them and keep them from learning how the world really works? If someone doesn't do their job, they get fired. OP had to learn that sooner or later.

I know, but damn, in this economy? I know nothing comes easy, but that was just cold. If Your own mother did that to you, how would you feel? That's shitty. Don't coddle them but don't give them a shit deal.

46- And by the same token, the OP could actually be a decent worker, but is held up to higher standards because he's her son. Or his mom IS a bitch who fired him for trivial reasons. This is one of those FMLs where we really need more information before judging OP...

#38 he's right, we don't know what he did wrong. but there is no difference of feeling between getting fired by your mom, or just another boss. it feels shitty all together, but if she just let him do whatever he wanted then if he jumos in his career with the same mentalities and habbits.. then he'd REALLY be screwed. maybe this time (if he did anything wrong) he'll kearn from it and not be screwed out of potential jobs that are better in the fututre. I think she did him a favor.
