When I first read Mark Jason Williams’ essay in Modern Love’s inbox, I laughed, sighed, and nodded.
His essay, “A Bet She Couldn’t Resist,” skillfully describes the well-intentioned but often overbearing love mothers have for their children.
His essay also expresses the urgent need for children to be seen and accepted by their parental figure (even if those children are well into their forties).
Find out how a $100 bet changes the dynamics of Mr. Williams with his mother changed for the better.
