i have always raised my voice at my mother especially when we have arguments or when she keeps on pestering me when im in really bad mood... i have never raised my voice at my father because i am too afraid of him, in fact when i was a kid, his shout can even make me cry...

I have raised my voice at my mother, but that was when I was teenager and truly out of control. I would never as a adult shout at one of my parents, it is not how I was raised. I have learned that when I start to get frustrated it is better to just say I think I will go now maybe we can talk about this another day. But believe me there are times when I just want to give my mom a good what for but thankfully patience and maturity seem to over ride that feeling.

i'm bout the same way. i have raised my voice to my mom, but i regret it and i've only raised my voice to my dad if we've been in a major blowout fight. i'm older now, though, and i don't any of that anymore.

Do you know that children are not supposed to raise their voice at their parents? You don't have any idea how much you hurt your mom whenever you raise your voice at her. Learn to control your anger and learn to hold your voice though irritated, you owe it to her after everything that she has done for you. You don't know it but, I believe she cries once out of hearing from you out of desperation and the deep hurt you have caused her. After an argument, make it a point to come to your mom and hug her then tell her how sorry you are for what you did. Once you noticed that she is in a better mood, ask her if you could talk. Then request her not to shout at you again. She does not have to because you are willing to listen to her rants if only she could control her voice. You will see, your relationship as a family will greatly improve. In the family, it was I who told my kids (while they were still very young) to always nurse an understanding heart for their parents. We are coping with so many problems in running the household. If they could just listen to me as I rant about my anger without any word and come to me when I have cooled down so we can clarify matters. They can always air their side at the right time and they shall have my undivided attention. In your case though, I can see that it will have to be you to do the move.

My case is also similar to you. I won't be able to control my self in some occasions, which leads to shouting to my mother. My father is friendly but I am afraid of him.

Put yourself on the shoes of someone else... what would you feel if someone raised their voice on you? .. I advise you not to do that ever to your mother again. . You should respect your mom just the way you respect your dad. . Fair square my friend. (",)
