    My dad is a relatively chill guy who works in homeland security and makes $100k a year. he has a wife, 5 kids (including myself) and a nice home to live in. Sounds peachy, right?

    My mom, on the other hand, is the most stand-offish person I've ever met. she doesnt hold a job, and in any type of argument, she just refuses to talk to the person she's arguing with. Sadly, this most often happens to be my dad.

    So this morning, they decide to fight on who gets to take me to work. Over the past few weeks mom has been trying to get on our good sides my playing a facade of being more accepting when its obvious she's pissed as hell or she disagrees. For whatever reason, it felt like she was using this argument to see if she had truly won me over. My dad, on the other hand, wanted to take me to work because he felt it would be more convenient for everyone.

    After this emotional tug-of-war, I said f--- it and asked my friend to take me in instead. I thought I was okay but the minute I started talking, I broke down in tears. This type of arguing has been going on for years, but I've finally reached a point where I cant take it anymore.

    What should i do?

    Speak out loud to them. Ramble on and on about how you feel and what you think they should do so that everything can be peaceful. And then give them a negative-positive about them. Tell them all that is bottled up in your mind until everything you have is out. Then change your tone of voice to calm and try to find a solution that will work out for everyone.
    That's Phase ONE
