All my mom does is yell. - March 22nd 2009, 03:46 AM

It's so darn annoying, when you already have a headache and then everyone around your house is always getting in a fight. Basically, my mom really has anger management problems or something, and they get way out of control. Small things really piss her off, and she starts yelling, to the point where I just can't take it, and it really stresses me out. For example, last night she got angry with me for such and such reason, and she started slapping me around and screaming at me, calling me a bitch and stuff. She tells me stuff like, "I wish you would just kill yourself, Amanda," but then the next morning she apologizes, but then she'll do it all over again. I don't know how to talk to her, it doesn't change anything. She's always pissed at me, and it makes me feel like shit. I don't want to blame her for a lot of my problems or anything, but it would lift a lot of pressure off of my shoulders if she wasn't so angry as often, you know? I just kind of don't know what to do about all of this, it's so hard to live here sometimes...

Im kind of in the same boat as you. My mom does the same thing to me. I just try and ignore her. She eventually stops.

Wow, I know exactly how you feel. My Dad is the same way (except he's a drunk). He drinks constantly, yells for stupid things, then hits me. Luckily he works six weeks at a time out of town, so I don't have to deal with it as much.

I'm sorry you're going through the same thing, I know getting through to parents isn't always the easiest thing. Sometimes parents just take their anger out on their family and it's not fair. There's probably something she's stressed out about that has nothing to do with you but she still tries to find SOMETHING to vent out on you for to kind of relieve that stress. I know I do that to my sister a lot and I don't mean to.

Just hang in there and you'll be home free some day!
In the mean time, do whatever it takes to make her understand exactly how you feel. It may take a while, but the more effort put into it, the more likely you'll get through to her.

My mother is the same way, but she drinks and abuses prescription medications and all of that interesting stuff.
She'd scream and yell and knock me around and then apologize the next day and hold me and cry and say she never meant it and it'd start all over.

Like Tecatholic says, just try your hardest to ignore it. It'll be tough, but she'll get bored of it eventually.
Have you tried talking to her about it? Told her how much it bothers you? If that doesn't work, maybe you should tell a school counselor.

shshshannon is right, too. The more effort you apply to it the better off you'll be- and you're just getting closer to being home free. Remember that.

I'm sorry your mum is like this, Amanda, it sounds like its horrible for you. Is there any way you could talk to your dad or another family member about how she makes you feel? Perhaps then they could bring the subject up with her. If you've already tried talking to her with no success, maybe try again? Just make it as clear as you can how it makes you feel. Don't get mad at her, just be honest and say how terrible it is for you when all she does is scream at you. Have you thought about writing her a letter? Sometimes people take things more seriously if they actually have it written down, then she can read over it in her own time and take in what you're trying to say.

I hope you can work through this problem with her Amanda, and i really do sympathise with you. Although, i'm lucky in that my parents are pretty laid back and don't shout at me, i can understand how hard it must be for you. Take care. x

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

If she's doesn't listen to you, there's nothing you can do.

That's one reason I moved out the night of my birthday and haven't been back. My mom yelled all the time. Just try and stay out of her way.

Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.
