Dad: hopeless alcoholic
"Mom": Sociopathic narcissist
Answer: None of the Above
Neither, truly. Both were abusive and neglectful in their own ways. I raised myself and was closest with my younger sister. Now, I am closer to my mother. I found out that during my childhood, she was medicated for schizophrenia, and that many of her delusions/her fantasy life was a byproduct of mental illness. I am attempting to secure for her a safe retirement now.
My mother because she took the time to raise me and be a parent.
My father,though he died almost 30 years before my mother - the extra three decades for which she lived,means that the degree of closeness with both my parents,during the different stages of my life,has been high.
Thank you,that's true - unfortunately,we don't always fully appreciate it when we are young and growing up;that realisation comes later.
definitely mother, she was my hero.
My father got lost in alcohol
wow, how interesting,
neither here either, father was abusive and mother allowed it and neither knowed how to show love
it is the generation of awareness that it is abuse ;)
i can't wait to see what our children have to say about our raising of them LOL
thank you, but don't be, i learn a lot early
started my journey younger then most and happy with who i am, and with out my start, i would be me :)
everything happens for a reason.
Mom when we were young but when we grew up Well," Dad; he was always right".
My Dad, had a great Mom too but she had me late in life so when I was a teenager she was going through change of life. Not a good combination.
I was distant to both but in others eyes I have been a good daughter. I have tried my best but I was not emotionally close to my parents.
Hmm, shame on me, until my father passed away I have cried every night that I was not good enough. Live with regret.
No I didnt take it as criticism. Its long story and I live in Asian country where people consider their family and elderly important, I felt sad that I seldom talked with him properly
I am not close to either parent or any of my siblings. The cult and my parents contaminated my ability to get close to anyone. I even haven't been able to give and receive normal hugs to my kids without my whole body going into fight or flight response.
Honestly, none. I spent most of my life away from my family. But I guess my Dad.
There was a point where my own stupidity got me kicked out, but that's not really why.
They both work away in the mines. So I just spent that time with my brother and sister.
I am not particularly fond of either one.
The gap has narrowed considerably but there is still a bit of work to go and it seems to be getting better as time goes on.
My mom, technically. I live with her but we rarely speak to each other.
Neither. I'm closes to my brother but if I absolutely have to chose I guess my mom
No they did their job they gave me life it was up to me to make it good or bad I just don't really talk to either much
