Would you say that you have/had a great relationship with your parents?
I had a great relationship with both of my parents and now that they are deceased, I am very grateful for that.
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
Mom, yes. She's my hero. Dad is out of the picture, and also he's scum.
I love my parents and family
Hahaha that's funny. -____-
Both are gone. Dad yes, mom not so much for most of it but she died way to young -44, so we were cheated
Great with pa, good with ma
Decent relationship with my dad. Not so much with my mom.
Good, but not great.
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 love my mommy!!! Forget my so-called father. Was never there
Father, stupid dirtbag who I hope lung cancer gets soon. Mother Meh.
Mom, yes. Father, no.
I think one of the battery brands forced SoH to get the poll question out without its permission.
My parents meant the world to me. They are dead now and I miss them terribly everyday.
On the surface it would appear that we are close. But the real answer would be 'not so much'
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 my parents. I'm lucky they care about me so much, maybe too much. A lot of people never have that.
I think 380lady is lou1's mom
Martyrs--too many martyrs. Big deal if your folks were drunk," emotionally unavailable" and mean-- pull up your britches and get over it. Had it not been for them-- you would not be here.
Both were distant emotionally during my childhood, both drank and smoked plenty of dope too... Now, they are still emotionally unavailable, just minus a lot of the substance abuse... I was close with my grandparents, who raised me, though.
Dad: hell no!
Parent(s) no. Parent yes, I have an amazing relationship with my mom, but not with my father so as the question is written I have to vote no...
Moms gone. Dad is still here physically. My kids didn't like my mom for the nasty way she treated me. My father beat me bloody a few times. No.
*were not was. That's just bad english.
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?
Nope, never. I haven't figured out how to forgive them for being bad parents.
Dad yes, mom no
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.
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.
^Same. Great relationship with my dad, horrible one with my mother.
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.
What happen with the battery brands?
@pre Welcome back!
Prea- I was wondering about you. Welcome back )
OT: Yes this is former Praetorian - I have been AWOL for a while because my iPod quit - I bought a Kindle and just now noticed it has SoH :)
The name is taken but it's still Praetorian - different package same content :)
Good but have not seen them over a year.
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.
The song "Dance" by Nas is a very good one. If u haven't heard it I would definitely suggest listening to it.
DEFINITELY with my MOM. However, that is an absolute no way with my dad.
They both bailed on me as a small child. I still live with my grandparents. How sorry.
Wow moms gettin all the love and dads gettin all the hate
Republicans have better relationships with the parents, why?
Yep- both severe alcoholics when I was growing up but they knew no better, we don't have much in common but I love them to death and I'm by far their favorite kid
Both my parents are manipulative, abusive, selfish people. Can't wait till I turn 18.
With mom, yes; with dad- HELL NO!!
