A. Hi, Anger is an emotional outcome as young one too gets angry for silly issues. This has nothing to do with the age rather maturity goes with the age. As your mom is getting older, she could have been affected psychologically. May be you need to spend quality time with your mom and engage her in spiritual or other activities of her interest?
