Arguing With Parent?

Me and my dad are not getting along right now at home. For the past three days, we have been arguing non stop. How do I resolve this issue so that we can get along for at least until my birthday, which is in a month.

Happy Birthday !! Sorry to hear you are not getting along with your dad. Need to know your age, and a little bit on what you are arguing about, do you live there ?? Can you and he sit down quietly and talk it over , do you have a mother who could help with the situation ??? Do so hope you can come to some sort of agreement !!

First, take a breather and minimize interaction for a day.

Parents try to control their kids' behavior for reasons of:
-- Health and safety (including education)


-- Money
-- Cultural traditions.

Try to get your father to tell you which of these reasons is at the root of an argument. Getting this information is really important to understanding each other.

Parents tend to forget what it's like to be young and craving independence and questioning everything. If there's something the two of you can do together to escape the everyday craziness and allow him to feel young and free again, do it. Sports, listening to music, grilling up a feast, even walking through the woods or taking a little trip to visit relatives all can be a good distraction and help open up communication.

The universe is with you, and the power of youth is like no other. Be strong and be fair. Good luck!

You need to be more specific about what you are arguing about. It is his home and you have to follow his rules.

I think it would be a good idea to talk to your Dad. Ask him to chat with you, asking him to explain his concerns and frustrations. Why are you unhappy with me right now? What can I do to improve myself ?


Listen to what he is saying, validate his concerns, and adjust yourself to improve. Father usually knows best, and I would bet that he's just trying to get you to your best self!

First and formost, ask you Dad if you can talk to him about how you both and how you can get along better. Tell him that you are concerned about the way things are going. If there is a inside story to the arguments(disagreement), be sure to let your Dad speak first. You need to be a good listener while he speaks. This will get his attention. There seems to be underlying problems , to cause the build up. In the end communication is the key.

It is really very difficult to give you advice without knowing what you are arguing about. An example would be very helpful.
The relationship between parents and children is often difficult. In difficult cases, people need the help of a psychologist.


I also know that there are people who just like to argue. You are giving too little information. Or maybe you both like to argue. An apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Think about why the argument is happening. People very often do not want to admit that they are wrong. People prefer "anything but losing the argument". You do not want to lose the argument and therefore continue to argue with your father? Why don't you change the subject to avoid controversy? Just change the subject without giving in.
Try the Gray Rock Method.
The idea is to find a neutral, boring response that doesn't give your dad anything more to argue with. For example, answer him "ok" when he wants to argue with you. It's not a concession, you're not admitting that he is right, you're simply acknowledging that he has expressed his opinion in the most boring way possible. Repeat it as boring and neutral as possible, to shut down arguments as they come up. By avoiding the argument, you "win". Instead of "or", you can say "you're right, Dad" or "if you say so" or "I'll think about that" or "I see" or "You make a good point".

Your task is to spend time with your father without arguing, always remember this.
After a while you can be proud of your skill in preventing these pointless arguments. This will help you later in life.

The Bible says we should respect and honor our parents.
Try that.
