Parents fighting... - March 31st 2009, 09:29 PM

For many years, my parents have been fighting with each other; screaming, yelling, threatening. Nothing really physical, and the cops have only been called once, as far as I know.

I won't throw out too many details right now, but I'll give the basics.

For the last few days, they have been fighting a LOT and I mean, to the point where they are not even trying to hide anything anymore. From what I am hearing, even as I type, they are extremely close to splitting up for good.

I have a little brother here to, who is hearing everything, and both of us are tired of all this. I have tried talking to both my parents on multiple occasions, but it only results in me getting yelled at, which brings back horrid memories, which gives me a panic attack and I end up doing something to myself.

I just don't know what to do anymore about them...

Hey Kris. :]

I know exactly what you're going through. I went through all this with my parents. It's horrible and can ruin everything, I know.

The thing you have to realize is, you can't do anything ''about'' them. They're adults, and sadly, adults don't tend to listen to their children when it comes to ''Grown up'' problems.

Remember, they're not enjoying this either. Sometimes, parents can have so much stress that the only way they can get it out is by fighting with each other.

What I found was best, was just to lock myself in my room and blast my iPod so I couldn't hear anything. It made it not ''real'' anymore. They were just a noise in the distance that didn't mean anything.

Though, since you have a little brother, maybe find something that would benefit you both. If it's during the day, take him out somewhere, go for a walk, he's hating it as much as you. At night, maybe you could just play board games or something, just drown out the fighting.

I know it's hard but everything will work out in the end. I promise.

Take care of yourself and your little brother.
