Even as a kid, I really have a closer relationship with my Mom. She is a working Mom but even so, she manage to have time with us, cook breakfast and take good care of us. Now that I have grown up, we are much closer since I can tell her things that I want to say and she will listen and understand. Who is closer to you? Is it Mom or Dad? Why?

I have a closer relationship with my mom as my dad has been away since I was a baby of four years old. Personally I think I'd still be closer to my mother even if my father was still around. I think boys are normally closer to their mothers and girls to their fathers, I know that is not always the case but I've seen it a lot with friends and family. And not to mention the terms momma's boy and daddy's girl.

I can honestly say that I don't have a closer, both of my parents and me are very close they each had there special things that they did to help me who I am today and we are still that close and they both still help me with anything that I need so I would say the same amount...I love them both the same to close would not be fair to the other and would hurt there feelings if I thought any other way.

Since childhood, I was close to my Dad but as I grew up, I am close to my mom as well. Now that I lost my dad one year back, my mom is everything to me and we are good friends. She listens to me, takes my suggestions and loves me a lot as usual.

I have always been close to Mom... thats coz she raised us single handed.. I have no special reasons other than that. She was the only one for us. Dad was physically present, but I don't remember him ever doing anything for his kids, not even having a loving conversation. So, it was Mom then and Mom now. Thanks for the discussion. Cheers and happy mylotting.

Growing up I was always closer to my dad. My mom and I had one of those mother daughter relationships and had a hard time getting along. Now that I am a mom myself I find that I am closer to my mom. I call her for advice all the time and we have really found a connection we never previously shared. It's strange how the dynamics change as you grow up.

Atleast you are both closer to your parents now. I honestly look forward to the day that my father would change so we can be close as well.

I'm defnitely closer to my mother. My paternal dad was abusive and mother left him; he never - to this day - has tried to find me. My second dad (step dad) sexually abused and raped me. He ended up being murdered by his own nephew. My third dad only married mom for the money my second dad left behind (he was wealthy), and he was abusive. So far, the guys in my life have been less than satisfactory as far as the way they treat me. It's a wonder I'm not a man-hater or lesbian. The only postive male figures I have in my life are Jesus Christ, and my uncle. My mother is the only one who has shown me unconditional love and acceptance, aside from Christ. So yes, I'm definitely close to my mom.

To be honest with you I am no closer to one, than I am the other. I feel the same towards both of them, I can talk to them about whatever I want to sort of, and our relationship has not changed any really over the years except that they more or less treat me like an adult now!!!
