Unhappy Always fighting...)': - May 17th 2011, 08:29 PM

I'm 13 and a girl. Lately my mom and dad are always fighting. Mostly over money. We're not rich. We're not poor. Getting to where we don't have enough money for some stuff. My brother's graduation open house is coming up and we don't have money for that.
My dad just came home from work and all hell broke loose. Bad. He just blew up on my mom. About how she raised us kids wrong and the animals. Thinking of any way to gripe her out. That song by Justin Bieber 'Down To Earth' ya know? I don't want that to be my life song.
Can someone help me? I'm always crying and it's just crazy. Thanks<3

So many people are going through money troubles right now its unreal, i know my parents have had several arguments over the past year over money.
There could be more too it than just money that you might not know, im not saying there is, its just a possibility. Your dad may of just been in a mood that day and took it out on other people - my dad does this too often!
Stay strong for your mom, be really nice to her and let her know not everybody will moan at her, and do everything you can to make her feel better, something as simple as making her a cup of tea etc!
All i know is, people when their angry can say some pretty nasty hurtful stuff that they might not mean.
It could just be stress over money, lifes not easy nowadays! It will most likely just blow over, try not to let it get to you, but i can't do that, so instead i just cry to when things get tough, just let it all out
Sorry don't know what else to say x

Thanks for replying so fast. (:
I stay with my mom always (always been a mama's girl).
My dad also said in the argument something like 'A lightbulb when off in yourbhead about a week ago? Mine went off 6 months ago.' and 'This is the reason; you raised the kids wrong.' and he said something to my sister who's 20 like it annoys him when she calls us kids different names. Likes he is so perfect. I'm just dreading what will happen when he comes home. :/

Hey there,

I'm sorry for what's going on right now. Things sound stressful. Unfortunately, money problems can cause tension. It sounds like your parents are going through a lot of things, and it's resulting in your unhappiness. It's not fair that your dad is saying these things where you and your siblings can hear. In my opinion, it's not okay at all. Can you talk to your dad about the way he is acting? Tell him that how this is all affecting you and that their arguing is not something that you want to hear. Ask him to please not yell, and not to do it around you. Also, can you talk to anyone about this? It's natural for us to hole inside ourselves, and hold everything in, but it's not good. I think you would benefit from talking to a teacher you trust, or maybe a guidance counselor at school. I know talking about things can be really scary, but these people love to help in any way they can. Take advantage of that. Take care<3
