Interested in Language
He is always filling his mothers ears.
It means someone is trying to influence the other person or trying to instigate a person against someone.
Okay. It's clear now. I don't know the answer. Wait for a while till some of the teachers here answer you.
We can make assumptions about colloquialisms translated from other languages but we cannot be sure.
In this case my assumption would be that 'he' is constantly talking to his mother, so much so that she does not get the advantage of listening to others and to hear their views. But there must be other interpretations.
