Don't hunch your shoulder Amanda don't bite your nails Amanda , what does this reflect about Amanda's mother and Amanda ?

The poet describes Amanda, who is continuously instructed by her mother about dos and don’ts. By t5hese words  Amanda’s mother is pointing out her mistakes and asking her not to bite her nails. Then she tells her not to bend her back and shoulders.  By listening to all this, Amanda starts getting frustrated by her mother and starts imagining herself to be in a deep green sea. She imagines how blissful her life would be if she would be a sea god having a fish tail instead of legs. Then, she would have enjoyed the sea waves and moved along with the waves up and down in the water. This is the reflection of contradictory opinions between mother and daughter.
