Unhappy Parents argue all the time... - August 7th 2009, 08:05 PM

I feel like my family is falling apart...and I don't know what to do. My parents argue so much, and it has definitely increased recently. It is getting horrible. We were on holiday last week and everyone was just in tears and it was crap. Its making things for me and my sister (we both have had issues of depression etc.) so much worse and obviously is horrible for mum and dad. Its embaressing as well...my friends feel awkward when they (mum and dad) get into a huge blow up, and I almost always get involved which is even worse. I don't really expect any replies. I just need to write this down...

Hey,

It sucks when parents fight and it sucks even more when they do it in front of friends. I think you deserve a pat on the back for dealing with all of this.

I was wondering if there was any way for you to talk to your parents about how this affects you and your sister? I know talking can be hard but maybe if you tell them how their arguing makes you feel they will try to tone it down a bit.

The thing about parents and arguing is they really do not know how much it affects their kids until someone points it out. I know I told my parents (ages ago) how their arguing affected me and they tried their hardest to tone it down. Maybe your parents will do the same.

If talking to them face to face doesn't seem like an option maybe you could try writing them a letter/email and explain it all to them there.

I hope this helped and if you ever need someone to talk to feel free to pm me.

~Jenna~

Hi Frankie,

*hugs*

I'm sorry that you have to go through that. I know how much that sucks. I definitely second Jenna's advice. Sometimes, counseling can actually help parents out, too. People like family therapists can help each person in a family individually but then also work on the whole dynamic.

Hope things get better for you. Hang in there, and feel free to PM me anytime if you'd ever like to talk about anything

Re: Parents argue all the time... - August 8th 2009, 06:44 PM

Hey everybody!! Thanks for all being so great! Love you all.
I have sort of tried to talk to them about it, I mean the other day for instance I wouldn't talk to them because they were aruging in the car and we nearly had an accident, and I said they had to stop. And they feel really bad, but just can't seem to stop. And of course I get involved, so it just gets worse, and then they say its not just them arguing, so I should stop as well. What they don't realise is that it's their aruging which makes me angry/argue etc.

I think they wouldn't take family counselling well. I go to a counsellor already, and he has sort of helped me understand why some of the arguing might occur (from my angle) but its stuff which is hard to talk to them about.
I guess if it gets worse I could suggest it though...

Thanks again
