I'm afraid my parents are gonna get divorced

 
My parents have always argued, but in the last few months, things seem to be getting worse. They are constantly fighting, and nothing I do seems to help. How can I keep my family together?

 

I’m sorry you’re going through this, girlie. It’s never easy when anyone you love fights, but it’s particularly hard when it feels like family life as you know it is at stake. Though things might be rough right now, there are a couple of things you can do.

 

Stay out of it

Whatever is causing your parents to argue, always remember that you aren’t the problem. You know how when two of your friends get mad at each other? Instead of picking sides, it’s always better to stay out of the middle and keep yourself neutral. The same is true for family feuds. I know it’s tempting to try to step in and end the argument, but you have to realize that that isn’t up to you. This is your parents’ relationship, and they have to be the ones to sort out their problems.

 

Heed the arguments

Sometimes our ‘rents argue because they’re stressed out and they need an outlet for their worries and fears. If Mom and Dad are battling over the household budget, do your best to keep spending to a minimum. If they’re warring over things like who’s cooking dinner or cleaning the house, pitch in and do what you can to help out. Remember, it’s your home, too!

 

Talk to your buds

‘Fessing up to family problems can be embarrassing. Why? Because it seems like all of your friends have perfect families. Wanna know a secret? Nobody’s family is perfect. If you bite the bullet and spill your concerns to a bud, I bet she’ll open up about her own problems at home. Talking it out can strengthen your relationship with your besties and take some of the emotional weight off your shoulders.

 

Stay strong, sweetie!
