sometimes you have to ask yourself : Do I want to be right or do I want to be happy? Do try to be respectful as she is your mom.

Try to avoid talking about things your argue with her. Or do something extra like a chore or helping her she will relize you only want peace not anger.

I could not agree less. Heshe needs to talk to his mom about things and work it out but in order to do that they will have to find a time when everything is peaceful (I just did that with my mom in the car) like on a log car ride or while she is making dinner and have a CONTROLLED conversation. Don't raise your voice, talk back, or have an attitude. Be sure to know the difference between talking back and stating your point respectfully. Good luck hope I helped;)

Arguments are Ok. That's how problems are solved. You just got to know when to break off the argument, retreat from the field and cut your losses, surrender to a higher authority.

Just remember that every thought that comes into your head does not have to come out of your mouth. Keep your opinions private.

How about having discussions with your folks at times where neither of you are upset. Find a time that is good for her as well as you. Keep talking and keep your mind and heart open to what you might hear.

Go to your room and keep a distance if you guys always get in arguments or have a talk with her about how you feel and how it's affecting you

The Bible says "an answer when mild turns away rage"( Proverbs 15:1 NWT). So if an issue comes up that you and your mom need to talk about try to answer her calmly and respectfully. If you are bringing up a problem then make sure it is not at a time when she is tired, just returned home from work, or things like that. Also try to realize times when you are most likely to be upset and be extra careful about how you talk to your mom during these times. Issues and disagreement with parents can come up but they do not have to turn into heated arguments, they can be solved peacefully.

I have six kids and I have learned, our arguments always start with lack of good communication. It takes practise to learn how to say what you need and adults are not always good at it either.

I have found this website, to be really helpful in improving communication with my kids. Go to http://kidshealth.org/teen/your_mind/families/talk_to_parents.html.

You can go online to find other article or websites, that can help. It is all a matter of listening to each other respectfully, calmly talking about solutions and coming to an agreement on what to do. Good luck.

You can try:
Thinking before you respond (proverbs 15:28)
Speak respectfully
Listen (proverbs 10:19)
Be willing to apologize
