    Which of the following sentences is acceptable?

    1. He didn't like his mother all the time because she constantly kept asking him for money.

    Again neither of the first clauses make sense. Generally, we don't talk about "not liking our mother all the time."
    3. "He has been annoyed with his mother lately, because she is constantly asking him for money."
