Compound, Comples and Simple sentences
I am having trouble adding punctions and understanding if this is a compound or complex sentence.
I like my mother she like me
I've not seen a rule about not using a comma because of the length of independent clauses.
What you have written is a run on sentence, which is two independent clauses connected with no conjunction or punctuation.
Here are three ways to write this correctly. I think the first is the best.
I like my mother, and she likes me. Compound sentence.
I like my mother; she likes me. Compound sentence.
I like my mother. She likes me. Two sentences.
Sanjay's suggestion, 'My mother and I like each other.' works well, also. This is a simple sentence with a compound subject.
