Do you get along with your parents? Since my dad passed away, my mom and I can't seem to get it right. It's like he was the glue in our relationship

 I had to keep my mom at arms length, she would get on my nerves! Now I really miss her, no one loves you like your mom.

My mom and get along pretty well but that is easy to do when you live a million miles away. I love her so much and talk to her every day. My dad on the other hand lives a million miles away and other then to discuss the football games I try and avoid him.

I get along with them great. they're also 2000 miles away, we talk on the phone. my dad is a "down to business" type, altho he gets a little goofy with my daughter, but he's not all mushy with me or my sisters.

I have no idea if I would or not. They both died when I was 13.

Most of the time , tiffs here and there, but I am highly supported by both. Very rarely do I gripe ( but dad can be grating.... Has been all my life)

I had a rocky, but mostly good, relationship with my mother.  She passed away in 2008. I have always been very close to my father and have a great relationship.

My mom and I get along great now.  We had a rough patch in the past when I was first starting my family.  I can't blame her given it couldn't have been easy cutting the parental strings and letting go of her only daughter.  We have an adult relationship now but it took some tough words said on both sides and understanding of where each other stood, and learning each others boundaries.
