My mom did almost the same thing to me! Well I wasn't really that young so she couldn't "force" me, but she conspired with my stylist against me and they cornered me with some relaxer one day and I gave in. I was upset with my mom, my hair and myself afterwards. Heck I STILL think occasionally about how long my hair would be now without that set back.
But you gotta just keep it moving....if you still want to go natural you can just start transitioning....all over again (I know, sounds terrible). I tihnk that if you start AGAIN your mom might realize how serious you are about it and chill a little.
For me, the thing that finally stopped my mom trying to relax me was doing my BC. She wanted my hair long and straight....once I got rid of all that hair she kept trying to "save" there wasn't really much she for her to do, was there? So maybe think about BCing earlier if you're comfortable with it.....it's also easier to maintain, healthier, etc (I believe in an earlier BC though).
4a?? Maybe 3c...some 4b??? No clue
