Both my parents fortunately have been very understanding of it except my father still insists that I get a real job for the work experience even though I make roughly the same amount as him (which is less because I receive no benefits or anything but hopefully I'll be moving up soon
Anyways my mom is a hardcore slot degen and we were going to the casino one night (she asked me if I wanted to go at 1 am on a Monday night and the casino is like a 2 hour drive from where we live lol) so I decided yeah sure I'll donk around at some 1/2. Anyways, we went there I gave my mom $500 to go play some slots with (lol she loses it all playing quarter slots over the course of 3 hours) but I ended up running well and made 3 BI at 1/2 so a little net profit there. The next day she asked me to teach her some poker so I was like alright we'll just start off with limit then and you can play the 1/2 game on my account. I gave her a super basic starting hand chart and touched briefly on hands to valuebet (obviously no way were we going to get into opponent tendencies or anything in that short of amount of time) so I told her if she had AQ and the flop came A72 to just bet unless you got raised on any street but try to see a showdown and stuff like that (obviously she was going to lose first time but whatever the experience would help a little bit since she knows nothing about poker).
I sweat her for like an hour and go to my friends house and come back like 3 hours later. She managed to make like 120 or something (and I'm like ??????????????? rungood mom?) so I go through the hands on HEM so we could analyze them. I go through the beginning part of the session where I was basically dictating her and tried to explain my reasoning on some of the bigger pots etc. Then I start to get into the session where I had left and mfw my mom is a huge degen. I saw her raise/cap 82s preflop, cap a 672r, cap a T turn and JUST call on the 9 river. The guy ended up having a set of sevens or something but lmfao I lol'd so hard and she justified it by saying "YEAH WELL THESE GUYS WERE PLAYING ABSOLUTE GARBAGE HANDS SO I STARTED TOO" so I proceeded to explain that that is exactly one of the many reasons why I make money at poker. Anyways needless to say we did this again later but she just ends up going into maniac mode everytime I would walk away (she ended up losing like 150 BB the 2nd time or something) and she just lost interest in it afterwards.
Also as a side note, my dad is concerned for my safety (even though I play 99% of the time online) and he's always like "MAKE SURE THESE GUYS DUNNO WHO YOU ARE OR THEY WILL **** YOU UP IF YOU PISS THEM OFF OR TAKE TOO MUCH OF THEIR MONEY"
