My dad is always quarrelling with me about every little thing

Dear Helpline,

My dad is always quarrelling with me about every little thing. Sometimes I cry because it’s so much. Any tips on how I can make the situation better?

Dear Anonymous,

A situation like this can really bring one’s spirits down, I know, I’ve been there. Usually, when parents do so however, it’s because they wish to see their child be the best that they can be. You may not welcome it now, but you will certainly appreciate it in the long run. Perhaps you’re a tad stubborn; maybe you refuse to adhere to your parent’s rules. Maybe it’s a matter of you performing poorly at school or socializing with the wrong group of people. Think about what your father constantly “nags” about. Question yourself—how can you make the situation better? If you are obedient, don’t you think there would be less bickering between the two of you? I’m sure you can work on change. If your father notices a change in your behaviour, your relationship will be much better, I’m sure. Keep your head up.
