Are you close to your parents?

 My dad died when I was 3, so it's just my mom.

We talk several times a day and are about 10 minutes from each other. Close I guess you could say,but my childhood was a bit rough.

My dad was in and out of prison until I was 16, he was an alcoholic and drug addict. He's been sober 20 years, but our relationship isn't close. My grandfather was really the "father," and he was my rock.

I'm close to my mom, but I'm 2600 miles away from her. She's coming here next month... I'm excited! I haven't seen her in 2 years!

Not as close as we could be. My mom was married to an abusive man for many years and if you say something to my mom about anything, she gets very upset.

I'm close to them but they don't visit as often as I'd like.

No. Things are very awkward with them and we're not close at all.

not me and my mom. she has emotional and physically abused me . I have gotten tired off it and stay away from her.  My dad and I are getting closer because my son and him are very close. I try my best to have a relationship with her but she turns me nuts. I had a mental break down because of her. So, I try to keep my distances from her. I am mother now but I will never treat my son the way she did me. I  am in counseling not transfer that learnt behavior.

 I know the feeling. My dad and I can have an adult conversation. Mom not much.  I have never done anything wrong to her. Even now that I am an adult. I do not even back talk. I would not dare because I'm scared of her. She will sometimes yell at me for no reason. I have feel like I have ruined her life for having me. So, I know the feeling.

Quoting Azure:

No. Things are very awkward with them and we're not close at all.
