Why would "théann mo mhathair" not be acceptable? Not sure I understand.

Téann comes from the verb téigh which means to go (ie from 'here' to 'there'/ another location) This Q asked for the verb to come (from 'there' to 'here') The irish for come is - tar, the present tense of which is tagann

Ni theann mo mhathair would mean my mother does not go.
