QUESTION: What's a day with your parents like? How do you talk to one another? I feel like I can't go through a day without arguing with my parents.

  1. I live with my parents at home. Sometimes we argue but then we get over it and move on. I noticed that we use a lot of sarcasm and jokes. We all know that each one of us is stressed out or tired so we keep the negative comments to a minimum. If one of us has a problem we talk about it instead of letting the problem grow.
    Just remember that you are part of a family and it is expected that everyone pulls their own weight and if someone needs help you do it, no questions asked.

  2. I just try to not spend too much time with my parents when I'm at home. I'll have dinner with them and maybe have a couple of short conversations but I mainly try to avoid them because I know we're going to start arguing over something stupid.

  3. I talk with my mom once a week and my dad maybe once every 2 to 3 weeks. I would say that I have a good relationship with my parents. I can depend on them and they can depend on me when needed. But honestly I just don't have a reason to talk to my parents everyday. They don't have the time or desire to listen to me talk about the tedious minutia of my day, nor I them.

    1. Err... I guess to finish the thought, because we only talk once a week we focus on the important topics and highlights. So I tend not to argue with my parents because we don't often talk about things where we would get into major disagreement.

      I guess my parents respect and treat me like an adult. They don't get upset with me because of the choices I make because I am an adult and those choices are mine to make. However, I am an adult and I don't often make poor choices upon which they would frown.

  4. I talk with my parents everyday its usually like a 2-5 min call, they ask me about school and exams and stuff. We have a pretty good thing going on, sometimes we argue about stuff but we get over it pretty quickly. I think its nice for me, I can vent and just talk to someone.

  5. I talk to my mom pretty much every day, usually text and then have a 10-20 minute phone call in the evening. I rarely talk to my dad (a few times a month?) via email since he's in another country across the world. Parents divorced when I was young and my mom got sole custody, so maybe that makes things more clear. I find that I usually argue with my mom if I'm with her for long periods of time, but it's usually pretty mild and we get over things quickly. Don't think I've ever argued with my dad. I don't really talk to my step-parents unless I'm visiting.

  6. I talk to my parents at night for 2-20 minutes depending on what's going on. Usually just catching up on what happened that day, etc. I see them most weekends as well. No major fights, last one was probably 6 months ago and even that wasn't really huge. Although we'll see what happens since I'm moving back home for co-op...

  7. I saw "Click" starring Adam Sandler.
    It honestly changed my life. I starting falling out with my parents and was stressed about everything. I realized so many things after watching that movie that were so relatable to my own life, so I decided I needed to make a change. I know it's cliche but I began to give my parents hugs and kisses to show them I really do love them.

    Life can be tough, but every little thing we do can make things better. GL with everything :)

  9. I live at home so sometimes they can be frustrating - my mom and I get along great, I consider her to be one of the closest people I am too, obviously we have are spats, but usually just rolling eyes / annoyed for an hour every so often. My dad on the other hand, first off: never seems to understand that "I have to study" means I honestly don't have time for anything else (ex. dishes - I have 2 sisters & a brother, they can do something...lol). Plus sometimes my dad is reallllly grouchy and don't always get along great. However...when my dad is in a good mood, we usually get along pretty good.

  10. I live at home and, apparently bucking the thread here, I get around great with my parents - no real problems at all :)
