Acquisitive prescription will apply only in case the property sought to be acquired has no title or owner, hence it will not and never apply in case of possession by mere TOLERANCE.
In your case, since your Momma ALLOWS other person to use the property, then they cannot invoke that "acquisitive prescription" because their possession is merely by tolerance.
