Hey! im a 13 year old girl. my parents are in a heated fight! they wouldn't stop. they sleep in seperate rooms, they both dont speak in the morning and the afternoon. At night, they start fighting again. my dad yells at my mom, and she cries the whole time. i have 2 sisters, one of them is older than and the other is younger. i dont want my smaller sister to grow up in these conditions, she is only 9. i just want us to be a family again. i want them to stop. its not getting better. how can i help, and make them stop?

Ohhhh, I'm so sorry to hear that your parents are having problems. Have you tried talking to them? Sometimes parents (adults in general) get so caught up in their own problems they forget to stop and think about how it is effecting the rest of the family. I'm sure they love you and your sisters

more than anything and it may help to tell them how their arguing is making you feel. I hope this works out for you. Please let us know what happens.

Yes you could try to talk to them (maybe at different times), if you are afraid to do this, then you should talk to an adult that you know and trust.  Someone should step in and help you kids out.  You are right that it is not a place for anyone to grow up that way.

I am so sorry that you are around all that chaos it does affect you I know because I grew up like that and it still affects me to this day. I would wait until both of them are calm and ask them if you can talk to them and tell them how much this is bothering you. I know if my kids came to me and said something like that I would do everything in my power to change the situation.

I sympathize with your situation TJ. It is really hard to live in a home like that. I suggest that you get help from a trusted relative and get the whole family in a vacation trip. If possible, go to the places where your parents fell in love with each other. This would remind them of how they love each other no matter what comes to them.

Thank you! i talked to my parents. they are working everything out, its better now! we connect more as a family. my parents are trying to solve their problems. I just wanted to protect my little sister from problems, she is just a kid. i know im her older sister, and i must not let anything hurt her. But everything is falling back into place now. It's all becoming good again!

I am so glad they are listening and working together.  You know, if it ever gets worse again, try coming up with a code word, something that lets them know in a flash that they've gotten too far out of control and need to reel it in.  Good luck!

Yes, I do think that you should try to talk to them and air out your concerns.  You're 13, but that doesn't really exclude you from what's going on.  If you feel uncomfortable with it, you can ask you elder sister to talk to them with you.
