    No, it will make you a stronger person in dealing with different situations as you go through life. You will learn how to adapt to different conditions which is healthy in our stressful world.

    Well, if I understood your question correctly due to the lack of punctuation and grammar usage, (there is a spell-check function, please use it!) I would say the best course of action would be for you to examine why you act differently in these two different situations. What would happen if you reversed your behaviour between the two situations. Perhaps this will make clear to you which one of them is the most comfortable for you. Then, you can slowly try to phase the other type of behaviour out.

    If this doesn't work, then maybe the best solution would be to find an equilibrium point between the two. Tell you Mum that you appreciate her attention but that you don't like being treated like a child.

    I doubt that switching back and forth between these two "personalities" will cause you any long-term damage, but there will most likely come a point when you simply get fed up with it and it would be better to deal with the problem before it gets that far.

    This is normal as you get a life of your own. You will always feel different around your parents. Even when you are much older and have a good job and are married, etc. You mother will be your mother your whole life and that is how she will act. No matter how old you are when you get around you parents things tend to fall back into the parent-child role even though you have a life of your own. Be glad things seem to be going well with your parents. And also be glad you have your own life and the football team.
