Mother Knows Best

Write a story about a domineering matriarch whose well-intended actions result in unintended consequences.

A strong maternal figure is commonplace in family dramas. In this case, the mother’s intentions, although good at heart, can lead to strained relationships and resentment within the family, thus adding to the drama. Explore how her influence impacts each family member differently, how they cope or rebel, and what happens when her actions result in unintended outcomes. The themes that could be probed in this prompt are control, rebellion, misunderstandings and the generational gap.
