Go to them and tell them: I'm sorry we got in to a fight. I wanted to let you know that I felt that way because you guys did or say, yadda yadda yadda. I understand where you two are coming from and I understand why what you guys disapprove what I did, or say. I want to talk to you guys and have an open conversation about this subject without getting mad. Help me understand you and I will help you understand me.
Don't say sorry if you didn't do anything wrong, however, sometimes we do wrong things and we don't see them as wrong. Give your parents a chance to explain their frustration.

Most parents are decent and loving parents. With that in mind, if you did something that they thought were a disappointment or caused them to be upset, I discovered that saying sorry or if its your mom, bring her flowers, kiss her on a cheek and say "I'm sorry" goes a long way. If you did that and they still refused to move on, then you may have to try a different method. After all, you are their daughter, you should know them better than anyone. Good luck.

Wow. That's really unfortunate. I know some Asian parents and also Hispanic parents would rather disowned their children to "save face". Its a machismo thing. If they don't want to talk to you, there's really not much you can do. If you want, send a letter...yeah I know..old fashion..or email them once in a while, especially BD or holidays and tell them you missed them. Another method is to have someone that they respect..grandparents? talk to them on your behalf. I'm sorry you had to go through this, hope things work out soon. Be well.
Report as
Do you think I should give them space? I hope so too. Thanks.
Report as
Yeah, give them some time and then try to reconnect. I never understood how a parent could raised their children to be adults, and then when we make mistakes or do something that's not to their liking, they could just shut us off completely. I hope your other family members and close relatives are still talking to you. Be well.
Report as
God bless you.
Report as
Thanks. Don't worry too much. Someday they will come around and all of you may possibly work thing out. Especially the deeper issues. Be well.

I hope so.

One way is to just ignore the fight and call them and say something like: Hi, mom, haven't talked to you for a while and I miss you. I just called to see how you are. A second way is to go to their house and say something like: I am so sorry that our disagreement exploded into such a huge fight. I miss you so much and, though, we may not agree on things can we put it behind us. I love you and need you in my life.. The second is like let's agree to disagree. You don't need to change your stand as long as you don't ask them to change theirs. If they continue to shut you out, that's on them, you tried and in the end that's all you can do. I expect, though, they will welcome you. Good Luck. Blessed Be.

Based on all those comments to all those answers, I'm assuming they won't talk to you. So try this: go to both of them (preferably together) and tell them something like this. "I know you all are all really angry at me. I am really sorry. I know you both love me and I love you. We have to talk to each other so I want you to know that when ever you all are ready I'm ready to talk." Then, allow them space and time and hopefully they will come around.
