Hi BroadwaySS,

Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. I am sorry that your parents aren't getting along right now. But you said that they are pretending? Do you know for sure, or do you think that they might have patched things up?

I know that it is hard when your parents fight. But I think a lot of married couples have disagreements. And sometimes they yell. That is kind of a part of a relationship. People don't always get along. But if it becomes violent it gets scarey. Do your parents fights get violent? I sure hope not.

You said your mom works at night. I am thinking when you let her sleep late, it probably scared her because she had less time to get ready for work. Maybe she reacted badly, but she probably was worried about being late. So if it is your responsibility to wake her up, try to wake her up on time. She probably has just enough time to do the things that she needs to do to get ready.

I hope that your parents make up soon. I am sure that they will. Try to help your mom out if you can. I am sure that she needs you right now.

Let us know how you are doing.

Hugs, Karen

Hi BroadwaySS

I don't think you are too old to get upset, you are only 17. It is upsetting when your parents fight, but that's how a lot of families function, it is normal day to day living for them. I also hope there is no violence involved because that is when it can get very dangerous for all concerned.

To me it sounds like your mum is really tired and I know working nights can put your body all out of whack. It can also make you see things in a different light, things are always worse when you are tired, would you agree? Have you tried to talk to them separately? Get them when they are in a fairly good mood if you know what I mean.

But if you have alredy tried this and it hasn't worked, then all I can suggest is you just do what is asked of you or maybe a little bit more around the house and basically keep out of their way. Why can't you see your cousins anymore? Has there been a family argument?

I hope you will keep posting Broadway, because we are all interested and care about you and we want to make sure you are safe and okay.

I'm fine! I talked it over with my mom this morning and it's okay. I've realized my responsibilities as well as my parents' responsibilities and we are currently functioning better :)

Hi Sweetie,

I am glad to hear this. Good for you!!! It always helps when you can talk to your parents. I couldn't talk to my mom very much and it was hard growing up. You are very fortunate.

Best wishes for a wonderful day!!!

Hugs, Karen
