My mom and I have been butting heads like every day and it affects everybody, even my dad. Any tips so we can stop fighting and fix the family?
Dear Head Butters,
I applaud you for wanting to lower the tension in your home. Your mom is
probably stressed and tired too, so try try try to get yourself to be nicer to
her, which, in turn, will lead to her being nicer to you. Can you be a smidge
more helpful than usual with cooking or cleaning? Can you leave a sweet note
under her pillow or send an email saying you’re sorry about all the arguing? Can
you give her a compliment on something, anything? Can you address a specific
issue in a measured and reasonable away? If you set a better tone at home, this
will inspire everyone else to act friendlier, and will be a win-win for
SERIOUS STUFF? For serious issues, don’t wait. Visit our HELP! page now.
