Question:

I have problems with my mom. She and my dad have issues, and she's taking it out on me. Every intention I have to make things better between us is bad to her. She pushes me away and doesn't want to talk to me nor see me. Please help me. I know I need to honor my parents, but I don't know how to go about it with my mom. My dad and I are very cool tho.ugh.

Please help me. Thanks.

Answer:

My guess is that you are seeing a glimpse of why your parents are not getting along with each other. What you need to realize is that you can't solve their problems.

Honoring your parents means to treat them with respect and when they get old to see to their care. Ideally, everyone in a family loves each other and gets along with each other, but every family is not ideal. Honoring your parents doesn't mean you have to like them or they like you.

My guess is that if you give your mother some space to deal with her emotions that she will reach out to you when she is ready. Meanwhile, be respectful and obedient.

Response:

Hi,

Thank you for understanding my situation. I am actually worried that people will not get my point of view. We are all trying to help my mom, but she keeps pushing them away. She gets mads whenever people are trying to help her with other things, not with money.

Thank you so much. This is great advice.

I hope you are well and safe. God bless you.
