How's your relationship with your parents?

Do you get along with them alright? Do you not? When they come to visit are you excited or are you dreading it?

For me, it's always a toss up because I never know what they're going to bring up or if it will be a nice visit. Sometimes my mom criticizes the way I run my home and raise my DD but other times it's a nice visit as long as we don't get into deep issues.

With my dad, I can only visit him for so long before he gets moody and unwelcome. Which is why I hardly see him. lol

  • It's great. I've always been really close to them, and he get along great. There were a few rough teen years, but nothing abnormal. They absolutely LOVE my son, just like he's one of their own kids, and it's been great to give them a grandchild. :)

  • My mother is dead
    and my father might as well be.

    when my mother was alive our relationship was rocky.

  • I have mixed feelings about my parents, I didn't really grow up with either so as an adult now my relationship with my dad is almost non existant, my mom's is good, she tries and so do I.

  • We get a long pretty good. I love seeing my mom. I look forward to visiting her and her visiting me. My dad on the other hand goes out of his way NOT to come to my house. ugh. He rarely comes to visit. I don't look forward to seeing him though I do love him. I find him annoying and many times an idiot.

  • Not very good, this is the kind of question I'd use an anon button for. It makes me uncomfortable to discuss things like that when I know that people know who I am KWIM.

  • I love my parents! They are very supportive and always there for me! Sometimes my mom still treats me like I am 12 though!!!

  • It definitely cn be better but I think it's strained for one particular reason. It always comes up and I can't possibly understand her side of it just like she can't either so we try to stray away from thy but otherwise we are good.

  • it's borderline!!

  • I will always want more than my parents are willing to give.  My parents are very self absorbed.  However, I know they love me very much and that they try.  I love my parents too very much
