Mom stirs controversy with ‘insane’ attempt to change child’s legal name: ‘[She’s] being irrational’

Numerology is the study of the divine or mystical relationship between numbers and life. The mother now wants her daughter to change her name based on the principles of numerology, believing that doing so would improve her life.
"She believes, while I personally don't believe it never worked," read the Reddit poster. "She's taken a few classes and is now a certified numerologist. Now she's got everyone in my family to wear random bracelets, wear certain colors, and so on, to" balance our chakras "and" bring in good vibrations. "I didn't have one Problem with that because it's not that big of a deal. But now she's making me change my name and personality to match her idea of what a good person should be according to numerology. "
When her mom wanted to make the name changes official, the Reddit poster got fed up.
"She wants me to write this new name several times a day and change it in official records, and that's too much of a hassle," explained the Reddit poster. "Since I was so upset and fed up, I politely told her that I wouldn't do any of this because I didn't believe in it. She had a big fit and said I would never graduate with good grades, go to college or one Got job because I didn't change my name and ended up struggling so much in life that I wasn't going anywhere. Obviously, I was very upset when she said my life was going to fail so I went to my room and distanced myself me kind of from her. Then she threw up another tantrum and said I never listen to anything she has to suggest and said it would make my life better. "
Reddit users found the mother inappropriate.
"It would be just as crazy if it was easy and free," said one user of the cost of changing legal documents.
"Your mother is irrational," wrote another.
