    go/come

    I would like to know the difference between "1" and "2".

    1. Mommy, where are you going, I'm going with you.
    2. Mommy, where are you going, I'm coming with you.

    Come - movement to the speaker.
    Go - movement from the speaker.

    I'm afraid your second sentence doesn't make sense.

    Mommy: I'm going with you.
    Son: Are you coming with me?

    Oh, it does ...


    Ex: I'm coming (along) with you; i.e., that I will come along means we will go together.
