The g'moro in psochim 2b says that a father who goes to rob his son, will not kill him and therefore if the son kills his father he cannot claim self defence. What about if a mother goes to rob her son and the son kills her, can he claim self defence if he kills her.

That's not how this works. You make an assumption. I ask you to substantiate your claim. You edit your post to make your claim understood to a wider audience reading this site. –  Seth J Jun 24 '13 at 12:12
