Just one more quick survey... Just one!

I'll make this quick and to the point!

Which one of your parents do you get along with better, Mom or Dad?
Do you think this is because one is more empathetic than the other?
Do you think having an empathetic relationship with one, or both of your parents is a good thing?
Just leave a couple sentences (or words) of information.







Thank you for your help!

Hey
Ok I definitly get along better with my dad. He is more calm and more empathetic than my mom who can get very... passionate at times. I think that having an empathetic relationship with both parents would be best because then problems can be worked through easier. But since that rarely happens having at least one empathetic parent is fine too.

I get along with my Mom SO much better then with my dad. I think it's because I can joke around with my mom and talk about whatever whereas around my dad I have to be more serious and can't talk as much because he doesn't enjoy listening to me babble..

I am close to both my parents and it is because I am empathetic. I understand that everything they do makes my life possible and so I see them as not only angels but also people who should be cherished and loved. It is good for the parent to be empathetic to a point, but it is way more important for the child to be highly empathetic because the parents give everything to their children.

It really depends on the day or circumstance. Sometimes I don't like my mom much at all, and others I would much rather have a conversation with her than my dad. It probably is because one or the other is more empathetic and that time. I think an empathetic relationship with both parents is a good idea.

I get along well with both of my parents. I love them both and they both care and give me so much. I think they are both empathetic, but in different ways. My mom is probably a little more empathetic than my dad. But, my dad is a doctor and has to be empathetic all day. It more depends on what the topic is. I think it is very important to have an empathetic relationship with both parents. They both have so much to offer; 2 different aspects instead of just one.

I get along pretty good with both my parents. I don't really get along better with one or the other. Well, maybe my mom. Probably because my mom is more empathetic with teenage girls in high school cause she was one. I think having an empathetic relationship with your parents is extremely important.

Definitely my mom. I think it's because I can talk to my mom without my dad's I guess 'protective instincts' kicking in. I think it is good to have an empathetic relationship with both parents.

I think that I get along with both of my parents equally well, but I think that it depends on who I am with at what time.
Having a good relationship with both of my parents is a good thing, in my opinion. Together we form a good support team.
