Take a deeeep breath <- yes that deep. Remember adults argue, and just like everyone else need to cool off to prevent more hurtful words from being said. You shouldn't dwell on this too much. When you see her again tell her how worried you were, remind her that when she storms out it's not only your dad who she was leaving behind.

she was crying when she left wich makes me really worried

I understand why your upset, nothing is worse than seeing your parent cry and being unable to comfort them. Just remember that you aren't the cause and that crying is a natural thing. We all do it to release built up tension and emotions.

I've only seen her cry twice in my hole life! The other time was when she found out her brother was dying.

That's not a bad thing it means she has no need to cry before, which means she generally happy. Remember marriage is a strong thing. It's moment like tonight that help strengthen it. Have you expressed your worries with your dad?

You can't do anything, you could try calling her sell if you have one, or call your local police department (not 911, your local police department number, look it up on yp.com) you can tell them the situation and that your worried about her because what if she's found in a car crash or something?

I'm a Mom. Sometimes when I get mad or overwhelmed I just need some time out to cool off, alone. I don't want to yell at anyone else or have someone else try to fix my problems. I just need to take a break and think. Maybe your mom is just taking a few hours to do the same thing. I wouldn't panic if I were you. Just try to be supportive and let your mom and dad work it out. I hope they do soon.

I'm a mom too but if my mom went out and left all mad in a huff and a puff most likely she would die in a car crash because she's a pretty crazy driver when she's mad,usually when I'm mad, I lock myself in the bathroom or my bedroom because I'm really afraid of that happening to me.

Most of my friends have died from car crashes or suicide.

To all the " car crash" people, remind me not to ask for your help when I'm upset.

That's very sad that your friends and some moms aren't able to cope with anger and frustration in less self destructive ways. I learned to just get in the car and drive to the river and watch the bald eagles catch fish or watch buffalo graze. It's much less dramatic, stress relieving and gives me time to problem solve. It's amazing how often I find my behavior is a big part of my problem. I hope you mom and your friends can discover healthy ways to cope too.

Just pray she's ok i guess. I mean she may just be blowing off steam. When i get into major fights with my boyfriend i can disappear for days... Sometimes you just need to be alone.

She's an adult, and can do whatever she wants to. You said that she answered her phone, so that means that she's not hurt or in any trouble. She's probably just cooling off somewhere, so the best thing to do is just let her be.

im not worried about her getting hurt, im worried about my parent's relationship.
Report as
you not worried about her getting hurt? but if she dies what are you going to do?
You say you care about their relationship but don't care if she gets hurt?
that's just rude! you should care about your mom dude!

Might have been a good idea to make that more clear in your question. In either case, there still isn't anything that you can do about it. It's something that they have to work out for themselves, and truthfully no matter how scary it might be to think of them getting divorced, if there has been a lot of fighting and arguing, then odds are things will be a lot better if they are no longer together.

I care about her! the reason i know she is ok is because i called her!!!!!!!

She would probably come back. Do you really think she would leave her own child just like that? No, a mother loves her child, and won't just disappear like that. My parents always fought, and sometimes my dad would leave the house, and he usually goes to work, and sleeps there overnight and comes back home. If my mom leaves the house, she's usually out shopping or with a friend or neighbor. I highly doubt your mom would just go away like that. :] I'll pray for you. When couples fight, they don't mean to. They just need to solve their problem, and need to sort things out. It's like when you arguing with someone, you sometimes fight and yell, but in the end you make-up. So don't worry, and if your mom doesn't come home by tomorrow morning, just keep praying. Be calm. :( I know how it feels. I'll pray for you.

If she has a cell phone, try to call her and check on her... If she doesn't answer and has a voicemail set up, just let her know that you are concerned and tell her that you love her... If that's not the case then PRAY... Actually u could pray about it 1st

AlaskaMan is right, married couples have their moments! Your mom must have felt that she needed a moment to step back and center herself. She will calm down and come back home. And as Alaskman mentioned, after everything returns to normal (and it will), let her know how her leaving made you feel.

I'm sure her intents are not to worry you. It's hard to understand but your mom is just needing her space right now. I'm sorry you have had such a bad evening, but please remember this isn't about you and you can't control the actions of adults. Try to go to bed and she will probably be home in just a little. I'll give a little prayer for you. : )

My parents fight all the time, to the point my mom says she wants to kill herself. Fighting is normal between parents and it is best to just let them cool down, shes probably just really upset, talk to your dad.
