Yes... Loved and admired and greatly respected my parents. I hope and believe my kids feel the same way about me.

With my mom, definitely. With my dad, not so much.

My stepmom caused a rift between my dad & my sisters and I for over 10 years. He passed away last week and I'm devastated that we lost out on 10+ years of memories.

Great... No... With my mom is good... Dad hell no! I'm just waiting for him to kick the bucket...

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.

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.

I love my parents with all my heart!

We never had a fallout and my parents stayed together for life - Dad is deceased Mom still in contact with me, so is Sis.

It took a while to get there, but I did. Dad and I became great friends and I am so happy that we resolved our issues before he died.

Just, i would say the middle class back then was more family oriented still.
And also they are grown up now so they see their parents as normal people instead of just mom and dad. Most kids my age dont have a good relationship with theirs.

Good relationship with both. Best friends with my mom, though. But my Dad really does get some elements of my personality.

I have all my life until recently. My parents hate the fact that I smoke weed. I've given up caring.

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.

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...

Just my dad, and I'm so incredibly thankful for that.

07/20/12 9:04 am

We argued all the time but I still loved them. So great? No. But I would say it was good

Excellent with my Mom, but a challenge with my Dad. We agree I'm "intractable" but that does not restrain his bullying nature. Conflict ensues.

07/20/12 9:03 am

Now that I think about it our relationship is ok but them and other dumb people are still beneath me.

07/20/12 8:59 am

Mom, yes. Father, no.

Just, not sure where you came to your conclusions.. Esp considering there is no filter for "middle aged". But the answer to "why" would totally depend on who you asked.

I don't have a very close relationship with my parents

07/20/12 8:56 am

I'm called 'disobedient',but I call it having an iron fist and never buckling to anyones will but hour own.

07/20/12 8:55 am

they are beneath me.

Very nice relationship with parents and in-laws. I am very lucky!

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?

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.

Yes. Even though sometimes its hard being a teenager listening to them, I still love them unconditionally and have a great relationship with them. ;)

I love my parents more than anything in the world, but I definitely have some fights with them.

07/20/12 6:37 am

Not that there weren't some bumps along the way--I was awful to them as a teenager--but we had a great relationship other than that. My mom was my best friend until she passed away and my dad was the best role model I could have had. I miss them every day.

07/20/12 6:25 am

My parents are the coolest, now that I'm not a teenager anymore

I have an excellent relationship with my parents, as well as my entire immediate family.

Exactly what I was thinking...
