Blue home - September 27th 2010, 01:23 PM

My mum and dad seem to be fighting more and more
they had a big fight tonight and dad kicked mum out of their bedroom tonight and said that she may be a good cook but she is the worst possible wife and things like that and that he will do whatever it takes to get free from his life now and free from all of us, i know he doesnt really mean it because he is a good dad but i am sick and tired of when he gets angry about work he has to take it out on the whole family and i dont want my mum to feel emotionally drained like this anymore.

Hey there! I'm sorry it took so long for you to receive a reply.

I know this is probably going to sound obvious... but have you tried talking to your father in private about how his actions are hurting the entire family? Don't just focus on all the negatives, though (ex. taking everything out on your mother, fighting in front of you). Instead, start off by focusing on his positive qualities. You said he's a good father. How so? What does he do for you? For starters, he works. Yes, it's stressful for him, but it pays the bills. Tell him how grateful you are for that! If he takes the time to talk to you or hang out with you on the weekends, then tell him how grateful you are for all of that as well!

Sorry for that to happen to you. If your father is as good as you say he is, he will listen to what you have to say. Tell him how you feel about what he does. Hopefully he will make an effort to change because of that.

If there is an issue for someone in their house, most of the time the whole household is affected, and it's not one of the nicest things. Like suggested above, it could help the situation if you have a private talk to your father and let him know how his actions are affecting you, and everyone else in the house.

Take care.
