Do you get along better with your mom or your dad? Or both?

I can get along with both my parents, but when I need certain advice, I lean more to one side than the other. Lets say I want to know how to impress a girl. I''ll turn to my dad for answers. If I want to know what kind of gift to get my girlfriend, then I'd ask my mom. I think gender plays a vital role when it comes to deciding.

I've always been closer with my mom. My family was pretty dysfunctional growing up (and it still is), but my dad is an alchoholic, and that deteriorated my parents' marriage. Since the divorce I've pretty much not talked ot my dad at all. I was never particularly close with either of my parents, but out of the two I am closer to me mom.

Maybe your family can work something out. Try sitting around the dinner table and having a nice long discussion. Sharing your feelings and making compromises will definitely help. I wish you the best of luck.

I am fortunate in that I was raised in a family where love and warmth are in abundance. I have a loving and caring mother, and a knowledgeable and fun-loving father. They give me a very happy childhood. Although now I am married, have my own family, and live in my own house, I still visit them every now and then, and spend quality time with them. It's really heart-warming to see my parents playing and laughing with my kids, just as they had been playing with me years ago.

I really feel happy for you because the only family I have in Canada are my cousins. My grandma lives in Australia while my grandpa lives in Germany. I get ignored by my parents every time I ask them about my grandparents. I think they're hiding something from me and I need to get to the bottom of it.

I think parents are like our guardian angels who watch over us. They love us no matter what and we are very lucky to have them by our side.

its not that i hate my Father, i love my mother more, my father teaches me how a strong-hearted person i have become, but its my mother who pampers the perspiration and tears of life, I love them both, very very much. but then i get along more with mom, coz dad can and do handle himself all alone.
