Parent/Child with none of the same ethnic groups

Posted: 16 Jan 2013 4:49PM GMT
Classification: Query
I just got my mom's results, and although it shows us matching as parent/child as expected, we have totally different ethnic groups.

Mine are:
British Isle 13%
Central Europe 59%
Eastern Europe 9%
Persian/Turkish/Caucasus 15%
Unknown 4%

Hers are:
S. Europe 33%
Middle Eastern 47%
Scandinavian 15%

I know from reading that the DNA isn't necessarily 50-50, but you'd think I would have gotten at least some of her ethnicity! Have other people gotten results from their parent or child that did not match at all? Any clues?
