- Where are you from? Reserved Asians like my family doesn't do that (calling mom by first name) but in almost every western country they don't really care about that especially if you're very close just like best friends. Stricter family may not do that. And the thing about your grades, my mom was also like that when I'm in elementary and junior high, she thinks getting 70 is disappointing but later when I enter high school she changed a bit. Try communicate with your mom more. Maybe, just maybe, she regrets what she did but is too prideful to admit her mistakes, there are many parents like that. Including mine (my father always thinks he's the right and most relevant one when we got into arguments just bcs he already live longer). I hope you get through your depression, and have someone whom you can talk to about your problems, try to have heart to heart talk with your mom. Have a nice day/night ^^

- Similar to the comment above, I come from an Asian household, so my siblings and I don't call our mom by her first name. My mom used to, and still is very strict with my grades. During my elementary school years, getting a 95% and below was garbage, trash. Now, 90% and below is trash. So yes, parents do change, even if it is a little. The reason of why you were grounded is stupid, yes, but think about it from her perspective. Maybe she was having a particularly bad few days, and it just happened that that issue came into her mind. She might even feel guilty for what she's done, but is just too prideful to apologize. My mother is like that, even when she's done something wrong, she refuses to apologize. Try talking to your mom, gently of course. It's best if you avoid cursing or any sort of negative talk during this conversation. She may understand, after all, I'm sure that she doesn't truly want for you to be upset. I truly hope that you resolve this issue, if you have no already.

- Exactly! I'm Asian and I can't call my parents by name.
