    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    That´s a little difficult to say. I would not say that the situation has improved, but I do believe that my parents are able to cope with it better currently. There is no open conflict, but a certain tension you know? Nothing that you could pin down that easily, so it is quite difficult to...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    Oh, that is so sweet of you, thanks for remebering me and asking! Easter wasn´t as painful as I thought it might be! There was quite an argument on Saturday before Easter, so I was a little apprehensive that day, but Easter itself actually was a beautiful day as far as I remember. We could not...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    It´s funny, because I do the same! I read many books about love. So whenever I have the opprtunity to watch that movie I will, thank you so much for the suggestion. I also ofen try to escape reality, and even try to spend most of the time alone, so that I am surounded with peace and quiet and...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    Thank you very much for taking the time to write this. It has been very helpful for me. First and foremost the reminder to have grace. That is definitely something I have to work on. Also, that a separation does not have to make things better. We are in so stuck a situation - makes it very...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    You can´t imagine how good it is to hear that simple: "You´ll be fine" Right now, I feel so stuck. I must remind myself that the future holds more for me than this. I´d add: not only are they afraid of the unknown, they are also afraid of their family and friends´ reaction! This is a major...

    Thank you, I know the serenity prayer but have never prayed it that often. So I will now follow your suggestion, and I hope it will help me come to terms with what is happening.

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    Hello... as you might imagine, situations like the one in our family last, and nothing has really changed in the last weeks. Thats why I am really scared of Easter. The past two years, there always was a major argument at Easter, and I was really unhappy. I remember answering casusal...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    well sadly that is not something we live by right now- at least not all of us. my parent will not take it and say: don´t quote scripture at me... (they are christian though, so it is really weird. I don´t know what to make of that...)And our fmily in general is not like the one described there...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    also: not bottling is so important, thanks for your reminder. I had a conversation with a friend, finally telling that friend how I feel and what is going on, and it was very healing to me, even if my friend obviously cannot do anything. So that is something I have learned: communicate :)

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    Well, maybe I just need to be more brave. But it still is not very easy, my parent will not see it as an argument if you quote scripture, and will generally not listen to anything but their opinion. My parent is not open to criticism. But I think that you are right, and I should say sth...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    Thanks for your prayer, it means a lot. It actually does help to know that I am not the only one to go through this kind of situation, and what helps even more is the fact that others have turned out ok. I know God can use this for his glory and my good, for I love him. I am not so very...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    I will pray. You are right, I am left carrying a lot of responsibility in the household, but also generally. It´s tough, but carrying the general burden of all the conflict is much harder. My siblings also know a lot less about the situation thatn I do so I don´t have very many people to talk...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    This may be general, but I think it´s one of the most important things you could say. Thank you so much for encouraging me like this. It truly is that way: God will use it all for good. And if that good is, that I can show otheres how to stay faithful to God through the pain, I will gladly go...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    Interesting. I agree on the part with every effort, but I believe I am still too young toapproach my parents like that. In general though, I think they should absolutely be asked that.
