Growing up were you closer to your mum or your dad? Brother or sister?

    I'm closest to my sister, my mum and dad fight too much.

    What about you?

    My Mom and Dad fought too much also. It is hell growing up in an environment where you don't feel loved, safe, or accepted. Needless to say I am close to neither of them and tomorrow I have to celebrate Fathers' Day as if none of my crappy childhood happened. Sad.

    Sorry for the downer, but you asked.

    I've always been closer to my mom growing up followed by my younger brother.

    Lately I'm starting to give my dad a chance, we didn't quite get along growing up.

    Was closer to my mom when I was in pre teen years and got closer to my sisters during my teen years. Well my dad was just there we never really communicated that much

    I was always closer to my dad, afterall,he was the one who caught me having sex with the football coach's son, he didnt freak out at all, he just told me to be more careful.....Thats been our little secret.....
    I became close to my sister when i saw her at the club years ago, i never in a million years thought she'd come to a club considering how very religious she was.... We had so much fun that night, she goes out all the time now and is so much happier.....

    Growing up, I was closer with my mother. But she was a stay-at-home mom and my dad worked a lot so I was just around her more. As an adult, I'm probably equally close. I talk to my mother much more frequently but have more meaningful conversations with my father. My mother is more into telling me gossip where as my father is more into talking about things in his life and work.

    I guess I'm closer to my mother, but then I'm not really close with my relatives at all. I do like spending time with my cousin very much - seems we have a perfect trouble-less friendship.

    It's interesting how everyone's not close to their dads...icon_neutral.gif

    That may be, but don't draw any conclusions about homosexuality and fathers there. I think generally speaking, if you asked anyone this question of any sexuality, the majority would no doubt say they are closer to their mother.

    Was not really close to anyone. Was in boarding schools most of my childhood. When I was home, Mother and Father would be traveling.
    If I had to choose, I would say Mother and I had a comfortable relationship.
    Father and my brother had a very strong relationship/bond. After my brother died, Father's demise was 2 weeks later.
    (My brother was Gay also.)
    Cheers,
    Keith

    I got along with both. Sometimes I was closer to one and then the other. I suppose it depended on my age and what was going on in my life at different times.

    I was mostly raised by my grandparents from I was very little up til age 7 or 8, then my parents divorced and I grew very close to my mom. My dad has always been there but my relationship with him has been kinda shaky. So I would say I've always been closer to my mom. No brothers or sisters from that marriage.

    I was closer to my brother till 7th grade, then I can honestly say I was a momma's boy. My dad was standoffish and hard to approach.

    I guess it was even all around. I took after my mom's orderly side and my dad's humor. I was close to both and actually I still am.icon_biggrin.gif

    Am much closer to my dad than to my mom, although we also have a relatively"normal" relationship however more distant. Same with my brother.

    Always closer to my dad. Still am. My mother is from another planet and I don't understand her at all. I try, but she doesn't get me, either.

    And growing up probably closer to my younger sister, and now closer to my brother.
