In Japanese, there are two ways あげる and くれる to say “to give” depending on whether you are on the giver’s or the receiver’s side.
They show who is feeling thankful or being thanked during any given exchange.😊
-My mother gave me money.
Can you find a mistake?
When you are the receiver, and you are not a subject, you should use くれる.
It shows that you are happy to receive it.
（人に）あげる give it to someone(not me)
（私に）くれる give it to me (+thank you!)
あげる is used when you are a giver or another person’s giving and receiving.
◎another person→→→another person
And one more…
母 is the speaker’s mother, so the speaker doesn’t have to say “私の”母.
When you use くれる, the giver is always you, so you can omit 私.
