Republicans have better relationships with the parents, why?

My mom and I do not have a good relationship but my dad and I are really close... So I said yes to be optimistic

I have a good relationship with my patents. I've always been the black sheep of the family but only because I will speak the truth. My siblings would rather go along and not make waves.

I love my parents. I'm lucky they care about me so much, maybe too much. A lot of people never have that.

I will be saying a lot of prayers for families after reading these posts! I have good relationships with both. Neither is perfect, but I am not either. We're all human. And, unfortunately there is not a training course for how to be a good parent.

I love both of my parents. They always help me even when I don't want them to, and they raised me in a loving and healthy home. I wish 100% of families are this way, but unfortunately some people didn't get that benefit. Maybe those people will not make the same mistakes their parents did.

I've never seen my parents as "friends" they had me after 7 other kids and they were in their 40s do when I was little they seemed so old to me and they were really strict. When I left the house I and since I haven't kept in touch with them as much as kids should...

On the surface it would appear that we are close. But the real answer would be 'not so much'

I love my parents with all my heart!

That was a Yes-No. My dad was abusive. Growing up I had a bad relationship with both. After my dad died, I realized my mom was just as abused as we were.

I have a great adult relationship with her now.

They both bailed on me as a small child. I still live with my grandparents. How sorry.

DEFINITELY with my MOM. However, that is an absolute no way with my dad.

The song "Dance" by Nas is a very good one. If u haven't heard it I would definitely suggest listening to it.

I truly wish...but no. It's good and we all love each other immensely but i would not consider it 'great' unfortunately. I'm trying. Fly out to see dad next week.

My parents meant the world to me. They are dead now and I miss them terribly everyday.

Both are gone. Dad yes, mom not so much for most of it but she died way to young -44, so we were cheated

07/22/12 8:03 am

Decent relationship with my dad. Not so much with my mom.

07/20/12 8:16 am

So...conservative middle aged men making less than $100k are most likely to have a good relationship with both parents...why?

Depends on which parent. For one I'd say I have a pretty good relationship (when we lived in the same area I'd have probably said "great") and the other, well, just no. Not good in any way shape or form.

@early :
The new system also causes problems with the charger.
I love tech but it seems to be unrequited.
If I go awol again it probably isn't me - I am healthy with a blood pressure 110/70.
I'll check out the glitch tomorrow.

My childhood was rough. Dad was abusive, and Mom had an alcohol problem. As I became an adult myself, I realized it was O.K. that my parents weren't perfect, just human. I learned to forgive, and accept. I have a good relationship with them. They in their late 70's, and I refuse to be bitter.

I have a good relationship with my parents, not great. If it was my mom I would have said great, but my dad is a whole different story.

Nope, never. I haven't figured out how to forgive them for being bad parents.

07/20/12 11:12 am

Up until her death my mom was my best friend. I've been living with my dad for the past 7 years and I can honestly say I wouldn't trade a minute of that time.

There was two battery questions on here... Why are you delisting questions @Tony? Did you decide Duracell was America's choice? And that we are all to lazy to have brand loyalty?

07/20/12 5:53 am

Exactly what I was thinking...
