Mom! Could You Leave me Alone? For this profile, I want to talk about the role of an Asian mom. "Mom! Could you leave me alone?" My sister always yells these words to my mom at home. Nowadays, a teenage girl thinks her mom's concern limits her freedom, so she considers her mom as the most annoying woman in the world. A teenage girl even thinks that her mother does not love her at all.
