However, "seinen" is just a demographic, not an indication of content. So, that doesn't mean that is has objectionable content (necessarily). It just deals with concepts/ideas typically suited for adults. An example might be unemployment and seeking a new career path for a 30 year old... compared to the typical shounen anime that is set in high school. But, all that said, that might be where your mother heard that it was for 18+.
In the case of Non Non Biyori, from what I've gathered, it does not contain any objectionable content. I don't honestly know why it is even considered seinen.

It's a crazy, fun shoujo about a child actress, and while it's definitely geared at a young audience, it actually talks about a lot of really deep topics that are relevant to many people of all ages. Stuff like death, suicide, child abuse, divorce, abortion.... Content-wise, other than the subject matter of topics I just described, it's pretty clean other than a few instances of things like pulling down someone's pants (off-screen) to embarrass them, or a boy touching a girl's chest to annoy her.
