What are my options?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Short answer is YOU CANNOT.
There are NO remote control apps for PC or Mac to remote monitor and control and iOS device.

You can at most allow your mum to send screenshots to you but it is very limited.  Only jailbreaking iOS will allow installation of VNC solutions which is probably not an option for you.

Unless you want to jailbreak the device...none.

Because of the strong desire of Apple to keep iOS secure, any generic solution will not be supported as its just too much of a security risk.

There are apps to control a PC over wireless from an iPAD but not the other way around.

Teamviewer allows you to control your Ipad from your PC

Teamviewer DOES NOT allow remote control of the iOS device

Please read the detail

You have to install the ScreenSharing SDK in any app you want Teamviewer to support .. NO apple apps and almost no 3rd party apps will have this included so in effect there is NO screen sharing for iOS with Teamviewer.
