"Listening to mum, I have learned how to be clean" - no?

That would be:

  • Ascultând de mama, am învățat cum să fiu curat.

Why is "de" here? And not "ascultând-o pe mama"?

In my opinion "my" is not needed

It's 2020. I have to flag this unnecessary perpetuation of gender stereotypes.

In this course, it's always the girls who go shopping, and now it's the mother who cleans. How about balancing things out a bit?
