help from people with divorced parents

since my parents divorce about 3 and a half years ago, my moms been very angry. since about January '05, its been really bad to the point where i want to be with my dad 80% of the time and only 20% of the time with my mom. How do I tell her without hurting her feelings? in the past i was afraid she was suicidal and i dont want her to get THAT angry again...helpp!

Re: help from people with divorced parents

Is her anger the thing that's pushing you away from her? If so, perhaps you can talk to your father or talk to a school counselor and they can refer you and your mother to get some counseling. No matter what approach you go, I think it would be wise for your mother to get counseling if she is in fact suicidal. I don't blame you for wanting to spend most of your time with your father if your mother is that angry with herself. That isn't a conducive enviroment for any child to be around. Your mom needs help

Re: help from people with divorced parents

yes her anger is mainly whats pushing me away...ive talked to a therapist and i tell my dad EVERYTHING...we've all tried to get her to go to a therapest but she refuses...i dont think she is suicidal anymore (if she ever was..i still dont know) but i dont like it when im there....ive had to grow up a lot in the last 6 months and be the adult..not the child
