Parents Arguing
Posted 3/1/14
Hey guys, have you heard of your parents arguing whenever you're doing something you like? Well I have, and this morning, my mother wanted to see my grandma and my dad did not approve that. Since he did not like it, my mom never went to her house and I really wanted to come. Since time passed when I came home from school, my dad got all mad and started arguing with her because he never likes seeing my grandmother, then my mom doesn't like his mother either. Then my dad started saying all these lies and told her to shut up because she was saying the same stuff about his mother. So this totally killed my vibe and he went off into another room with the computer like he usually does. When he gets off, he stays on his phone and does not talk to any of us and my mom does not like that. It's been happening for a while now and it's really annoying.

Have you guys ever been involved in situations where your parents argue about the side of their families?

not really site specific, so moved to general discussion

That is a bit specific for content related to arguing. Sure, but it was one side (one parent talking about the other family). To be honest, most people knew I studied at the university because my parents would happen to argue whenever it was near an exam for me (I commuted, no need to double my tuition if my house is ~10 miles away). It was always a weird coincidence. I swear they stopped after I graduated so I was convinced it was all a joke to see if I could get high honors or not, lol.

I don't understand your situation much. I don't know if it is the format of the words (one paragraph free flowing) or other. Wish you all the best, you're at that age when you should ignore it and not let it get to you.

I am sure everyone has had their parent's argue at least once.
In my case, it was not really about sides of family rather than my step-father being a drug-fueled A-hole who liked to hit his family.

My parents argue all the time, mostly from my mother's germophobia.

However, to answer your question, yes, they have argued over things like people visiting, visiting people, etc.

I once my parents were arguing, but my dad got angry at me and threw the home phone at the door next to my room. The he just stormed out. But my aunt came and all was well. Now, my parents are just fine.

Um argue when we're doing something I like? I can't remember a specific event but it has probably happened.

When my mom and step dad argues its a lot of shouting, cussing, and smashing. When my dad and step mom argues its mostly shouting and my step mom cursing and throwing things. Its not pleasant for sure, but I try my best to stay out of it cause otherwise the blame will somehow shift toward me -_- Now I think of it my dad doesn't get that angry toward my step mom but if he argues with my mom he blows up and turns red, I wonder why ...

There's times I really wish I could say something, for example, my grandma was visiting here and her, me, and my step mom went to the hospital to visit my dad. In my dad's room we decided to have a picture together of all four of us, so my step mom had the nurse take the picture. The flash on the camera wasn't on and my dad and grandma were trying to tell the nurse to switch it on and my step mom I guess didn't understand what they were saying and got frustrated. Well she got really upset and started screaming at my dad, for what I don't remember. My grandma told my step mom not to yell at him. So story short my dad and step mom made up and blamed my grandma for butting in -_- seriously if he was my son I wouldn't want anyone to yell at him while he's sick in the hospital ..

I tended to lock myself in my room and put my headphones on. Also it is good if you can have someplace to go if things get really hairy. You are not their therapist or marriage counselor.

I once heard my parents arguing over me, i tried to step in but they told me to leave, that it was none of my business... parents are so weird, anyways i ended taking a flying sandal to the head...I never spoke out of character again, that was enough to leave me traumatized.

No since my parents never lived together and they separated long before I was born.

My brother and my mother do argue like they're a married couple. My mom treats him like my father just because they look similar and act similar..it pisses me off but I can't do nothing about it.

Well, my parents are divorced and hold a strong vendetta against each other, so... Yeah, and for good reason. Borderline blood-feud and all that.
My mom and stepdad fighting over a similar topic? Yes. Pretty commonly; however, those arguments have more to do with relatives on either side doing incredibly selfish and idiotic things and Mom and Earl having to step in (or if they should), so they're not actually mad at each other. Both Earl and my mother are often put in the position of having to "clean up" after their families, so things can be stressful.

I've overheard/witnessed plenty of miscellaneous arguments. Unless they particularly involve me, I've always preferred to mind my own business and continue to do whatever I'm doing. No doubt they've fought while I was enjoying myself, yet I don't recall having ever felt that their arguments are an inconvenience. Why should they somehow schedule fights around my hobbies?

My parents told me they used to argue a lot, but never in front of me, especially when I was a kid. When I was older though, I sometimes had to help resolve their arguments, though there were very few. Guess I was lucky.

My Dad tends to be the cause of most arguments because he is always the one who gets what he wants.
We moved to Victoria in Aus from Canada cause of him and then he wanted to move to townsville because he didn't like the weather, after that he couldnt find a job their cause its a small town (he's in IT) and now we are in Brisbane.......
If he doesnt get what he wants he just gives the whole family the silent treatment. He expects the whole family to worship him and back him up for anything and whenever that doesnt happen shit hits the fan. Recently he got pissed at me and started shouting and putting me down and my mum didnt join cause she thought it was pointless, because she didn't take his side he is now giving her all this shit and she now feels really down. I was talking to her after ice skating and she started crying.
Sometimes everyone has crap to go through but when you look through threads like these it helps to know your not the only one.

Rant over.
