Am I being selfish for not wanting my mom to live with me?

Anonymous
I plan on getting married soon and having children. My family will reside outside of the US and I have no intentions in having my mom living with us. She isn’t the best mother/person and I do not want her to influence my future children. Also, having her around is a reminder of all the crab she put me through and she gives me stress and affects my temper. I want to be the best mother possible and give my children all the love, care and safety in this world.

I am the only children and even if I had siblings I would still feel guilty about doing this. I know that it is a child’s responsibility to care for the parent, so I would help her out financially to my husband and i’s best abilities however living with us is unlikely and only a serious health change would change my idea.
