A young girl asked me how to help her parents form fighting all the time. I answered it best I could.
From a Girl who wishes to remain Anonymous,
How do I keep my parents from fighting? It seems like they are always mad at each other. Is there anything that I can do to help? I just want to have one day go by with them just being happy.”
Well, this can be quite a tricky situation, you may want your parents to get along and love each other and show it all the time. I feel this is something that many of us want from our parents. Unfortunately we must come to realize that some things are not meant to be, and the best solution may not be the one that is most appealing.
Your parents may just be going through a rough patch; maybe work is stressing them out. The underlying cause for your parent’s tension is unknown making it difficult to figure out what you can do to help. As a fourteen year old the best thing that I can see you doing is to talk to them about how you feel. Let them know that their quarreling is affecting more than just them.
Another thing that you could do would be to suggest counseling. Maybe you are not able to come up with all the solutions but maybe you can send them in the correct path. Counseling is probably the best thing for them to get involved in. talking to a professional can really sort all the drama in one’s life for the better.
Finally I would suggest having your parents separate from each other, just temporarily. Many times this can cause them to see how much they love the other. It makes them see how they have been taking one another for granted, and this will many times cause the couple to come closer together. As they say “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”
