I don't like to fight with my mom, nor I have the mood to make myself feel like crap after verbal conflict. I just have so much to do, and I really want to make extra money. She always want me to come home in certain hours, and I just really busy with work sometimes. I couldn't be home all the time, it just won't help pay the bill. Maybe she doesn't trust me entirely. I hate to fight with my mom, but after stressful days and all the pressure I got through a whole day. I just couldn't resist my fighting mode. How often do you fight with your mom?

Well, back when I was growing up I used to argue with my Mom all of the time. It seemed like most of the time it was because I felt she was not caring enough about things going on in my life, and wanted to be there for help as she was so codependant instead on others. My mom has been gone now for 2 1/2 yrs. but I can remember many times disagreeing with her, and wish she could wake up and smell the coffee and enjoy some of my accomplishments and goals, but I guess sometimes Moms only tend to see too much expectations for some for sure.

I guess so. Not all the moms are perfect, but sometimes we have to understand their coming from. I believe I would regret some of our arguments too. I still respect her as my mom though.

When I lived with my parents I fought often with my mom, as she's that kind of person paranoic about everything, and she knows how to make an arguement about everything. Since I live by myself, even if we still talk, we don't argue anymore

Well, i do fight all the times with mom haha. Not a serious one rather a pampering fight. She always scold me am so naughty and not taking care of things. I use to fight with her to wear my shirts and jeans and will try to make her look modern and young. Well its a sweet fight. Afterall she is our mom, we have rights to fight but without hurting her!

I don't know if I can call those conflicts a fight hehe. But if they are, well, we fight 3 times a day haha. Why? Because my mother loves arguments even if the subject is not worth arguing haha.

Honestly I used to opposed sometimes with my mom, especially when my very private life is affected,but it doesn't mean that I am fighting her,I just want to raise my feelings of what she's done.Maybe sometimes I am wrong but I do admit my mistakes and feel sorry about what I have done.How about you?

Now, don't fight with my mom. We still have different views on the situations, but dont fight now, talk about it without a fight. It´'s too rare to happen, I suppose that while you live, you learn to handle situations and you can handle everything.

parents underestimate busy days of their children. my mother knows when i had a stressful day so she'll leave me alone most of the time. i don't fight with her but she does annoy me when she sings along with music behind her computer.

I never fight with my mom,we have some disagreement but it will never end up fighting,when things gone wrong I just keep myself calm let her do all the talking and I just had to listen and after her I just asked make my self clear and asked her opinion about it and if we really cannot comprehend I will just follow her words or decisions and wait till she can realized her idea is not right then its my turn to make things right. I just respect my mom a lot more than anybody else, I cannot afford hurting her.She use to be the only one inspiration of mine. Happy myLotting!

i usually fight with my mom when i am upset and she pressures me a lot not thinking my situation as a working scholar. but at normal times, i normally control my temper so as not to reason out back to my mother.

Funny thing is I don't fight with my mother at all. We are able to talk things over and resolve them. I find my daughter fights with me a lot. I will not talk back to my mother is is disrespectful even at 40. I will not do this to my mom. If I disagree with something I will stay to myself or leave it alone.

I don't usually fight with my mom. I don't like to and I don't dare. Sometimes, when I am really pissed off or mad at her, I just excuse myself and go somewhere where she is not there like my room. I just control myself to not shout or answer back. But sometimes, when I feel she really is unreasonable, I answer back at her. I like to keep the peace and harmony between me and my loved ones.

When I was younger, my mom and I was never really that close. It's as if we never see eye to eye. She's always been mad at me for some reasons I am unaware of. She easily got angry at me. The worst things she did back then was hit me as if I am not hers from my childhood until a few years back. When I was in second grade, I remembered her telling my brother and I to go to sleep while she was still ironing our school uniforms. When I asked her something, she placed the steaming hot flatiron on my left thigh. Good thing, as time went by, the scar could be barely seen. I never talked back at my mom. When I was about to explain to her when I was in high school, she slapped me so hard my ears rang and my cheek felt numb. When I was in college, I went home a little late because we had a little meeting since I was the freshman representative in our department. When I went home, she hit me in the face, threw a mirror at me, hit my foot with a hammer. By the way, I've been an honor student since I started going to school. The last time she hurt me was two years ago, when she got pissed at my idea of going back to my apartment and not giving them money. I gave her only some because it wasn't payday yet, but she accused me of having a man in my apartment that's why I'm itching to go back there. She wouldn't accept the fact that I have to go home that afternoon because I have to go to work at 4am the next day and I have to consume 3 hours traveling from their place to my apartment. She was supposed to pull my long hair but my dad and brother put themselves in between us so the only thing she was able to do was scratch my hand with her long polished fingernails. After that, they didn't see or hear from me for more than a year, although I kept in touch with my younger brother. But of course, when I heard that they're having financial difficulties and my dad got sick, I went back. No one apologized, but it's all right. I don't like drama anyways. It's just good that my mom never hurt me from that day on. I heard that she's actually scared of me not going back there or not keeping in touch with them anymore especially now that they lost their jobs and they barely have any source of income. I support them now and it's fine with me. She's still my mom and there is nothing I can do about it, is there? ^_^ And of course, I love her.

I dont fight with my mom because its not right to do that. I grew up having all the respect for my mom. Though I must admit that there were a lot of time that I dont agree with some of the things that she wants me to do but I dont get on fights with her because that would be disrespectful. When there are things that we dont like doing all we have to do about it is just follow even though it is against our will. It wrong in my family to answer back or even just give explanation about what you did. I didnt find that very good for me but she's my mom and they are our parents. I dont regret it anyway because I can tell for myself now that is they didnt do that then maybe bigger problems will arise.

almost everyday... i really hate fighting with parents but it just seem normal for us to argue... i'm learning how to handle it though... pride has something to do with it... and it also requires an art of understanding ... it's really a good training ground for me...that's how i take it... by the way welcome!
