'My parents are always fighting with each other'
Dear Diana, I'm a 15-year-old girl who recently appeared for the SSC exams. The vacations are on and life has become boring all of a sudden.
I don’t know what to do. I don’t have siblings and on top of that, my parents are always fighting with each other. Their arguments never end. None of my friends have such horrible parents. I must add that they love me though. It’s just that they don’t love each other anymore. I suggested that we should go for a holiday. But they both rejected the idea. What more can I do to maintain peace at home?
As you no longer have the school, study, tuition grind, you find yourself at a loose end. I suggest soak in the moments of having nothing to do. Read, watch TV or attend some creative class. You can plan outings to malls and movie theatres with friends. Basically just chill out till the results. As for your parents, you need to tell them clearly that their constant bickering is affecting you. If they love you, they need to put an end to it.
Diana will solve it!
