Hey M Girls!
We have a BRAND NEW spin on the daily advice column on mmm-mag.com. Each day at 8:00 PM/EST we'll post a reader question and have our M Girl answer it!! Today, we're talking parents arguing -- and kids being in the middle!!
M Reader TuubsBaabes asked: My parents have been arguing a lot lately. I've been trying to leave the room when they start, and I've also been trying to calm it down after it begins -- but nothing's working! I don't know what to do anymore because I don't want them to split up. Any advice?
And M Girl's answer is: "Dealing with issues between your parents can be really tough -- not to mention listening to it all! The best thing for you to do is tell them how you feel. Maybe you could ask them to have a seat with you and listen to what you have to say. You could even talk to them separately if you're afraid it won't work having them both there at the same time. Parents have arguments all the time -- they have a lot of stuff on their plates! But the most important thing is that you maintain a healthy relationship with them. And if in the end they do decide to separate, then let them know you are still there for them and will always be their daughter. Just because they may not be together, doesn't mean that they love you any less. It may be really hard for you at first, but in the end, you may change your mind about it. Just hang in there -- whatever the outcome, you'll be just fine!"
