I went to visit my folks on Tuesday and drove 8hrs to see them since my husband is deployed and my daughter doesn't get to see them except once every 2-4 months if that.. Well my dad and I have issues from the past, and I ended up in fostercare when I was 16, and just started a relationship back up w/ my parents about 4 yrs ago. Well my daughter was laying on the floor w/ my brother and not feeling good, so I took some tylenol and squirted it in her mouth while she was laying there, and some spilt on the floor, well my brother decided to rub it into the capet and my dad went balistic and it went from carpet talk to past issues, and I ended up leaving bcuz of what he said to me, and headed back towards home, and got stuck in this blizzard in Kansas. So we're paying $140 for 2 nights,since we got into this fight. I dont want to take my daughter back to see them again bcuz it's disfunctional there, anyone else have this issue?Answer Question

I no longer will engage in arguments with my parents, it's conscious effort on my part and requires a lot of energy. I also won't allowed myself to be disrespected by them nor will I allow mistreatment; if necessary I will say what I need to say & express what I feel but, I no longer defend myself, beliefs or actions, to them. It is strained but, setting boundaries (that I adhere to because they are not open to compromise or working things out) has a helped a bit. So, far I still feel that I want a relationship with them but, I will only continue to do so if it is on terms that I believe to be acceptable.
