What are you confused about? It almost sounds like you are shaming her for calling you?

There is something called the rapprochement stage, where the young child WANTS to go off and explore, but still needs mother to be there as a secure base. Both mother AND child have to progress successfully thru this phase. I know my mother never did, not with me, not with her own mother. So any independence was always problematic. You guys might still be stuck there too.
