I get along with both very well. However, I think I have more things my mom and I can discuss, but that's just probably because we can relate, both being females! Lol. My dad and I, on the other hand, can discuss things me and my mom wouldn't really both be into discussing, so it evens out. I get along with both equally, but we have different relationships, I'd say. I think I spend more time talking with my mom than dad because my dad and I have silent moments of spending time together. Not necessarily chatting the whole time, but probably watching TV, doing some activity or laughing. I love hearing the stories he tells me about his life & my mom really doesn't talk about that kind of stuff. So I'm lucky I get along so well with both.

My dad. My mother and I have never really gotten along--she was pretty abusive to me when I was younger.

GONE! GONE!
Well, I think I get along better with my mom. She's better at showing she cares. That said I have more in common with my dad.

Definitely my mom! I get along okay with my dad now that I'm older, but he's not easy to be with because he's very judgmental & feels the need to say whatever comes to mind, everyone else be damned.

I get along with both of them very well. I count myself very blessed to have such great parents.

I get along equally well with both parents. they were divorced for 30 plus years and I didn't know dad because I was to young at the time. After the step dad (which was an ASSHOLE) dies we moved to Ohio where dad and my brothers are. Wouldn't you know it they're back together lol.

I know it's a non-answer, but I feel like I get along with both equally! I am blessed to have a good relationship with them, and I think they are really nice people regardless of the fact that I'm related to them.

Both of my parents have passed on. When they were alive, I was very close with my father - but my relationship with my mother was strained. The big problem with my mom was that she wanted me to take her side in disputes with my father. I refused because I felt is was totally out of place for her to ask me do that.

Both. I used to help my dad in his workshop when he repaired TV's, the old ones with the tubes and resistors, still today we have that common bond with technology, now desktop computers and mobile devices. He was my study partner all through school and helped me every bit of the way to graduate even though he only completed 9th grade. Go Dad!

My mom and I have shopping in common and housekeeping. She likes some of my ideas of how decorate and in turn I admire hers. We wear the same size clothes so often we switch especially since her taste now has become more contemporary and stylish.

My folks and I often go out on what we call our bonding day shopping trip and have several stores we frequent together followed by a dinner out at a restaurant.

I get along better with my father. He was a fun dad when I was a kid (despite having Bipolar Disorder) he would come in my room in the morning once in a while and say, "What are you doing today?" I'd tell him I was going to school and he'd say, "No, you're sick. Let's go to a movie or go downtown to comic book shops." Then he'd call me in sick and we'd go and play.

He's a bit of a nut, a really intelligent guy, college professor (retired) but he's a conspiracy theorist and that can get on my nerves. (He's one who believes 9/11 was caused by the government. I usually try to shut down these discussions before they get started... I really don't believe most of what he espouses when it comes to conspiracy theories and I don't want to get into it with him. He's an old man and I'm not going to argue with him.)

My mother and I also have a strained relationship. She is still bitter about my father divorcing her more than 25 years ago. (Actually, the order was for "mental cruelty" and she had to file it, but he was the one who wanted out.) She got remarried and her husband died, but she's still angry at my father for things that happened, like, 40 years ago. They do get along, though. They usually make an effort on Christmas, and my father always invites her when he has holidays at her house (she always declines) so I have that to be thankful for.

We have Christmas at our house, and I am grateful that they can get along for a while. A few Christmases ago, my mother was really digging into him at Christmas and I had to take her aside a few weeks later and point out what she was doing was childish and hurtful. He NEVER says anything against her, in public or in private and you have to respect that.

Both of my parents are dead. I got along MUCH better with my mom. We had a close relationship the whole time, with never anything but minor quarrels coming between us. She encouraged me to do the things I loved and was always there to listen and to offer (usually excellent) advice. For many years, she was my best friend.

My dad and I never got along. He wanted to control me, for me to do all the things he loved to do as a kid. He tried to discourage me from doing anything I wanted to do which he wasn't into (which, unfortunately included rock music and sports, both of my major passions). He was quick to anger, even rage, and his default mode of dispute resolution was shouting. To him, "listening" was simply pausing for the other person to finish speaking before beginning his next rant. He believed in a wide array of conspiracy theories, which scared off almost all of my parents' friends. From an early age, I learned the fine art of "smile and nod", tacitly seeming to agree with whatever nonsense he said — while quietly pursuing my own interests without informing or involving him. We sort of patched things up late in his life. His personality changed almost completely after he had a stroke and I was finally able to have something of a positive relationship with him.

I can tolerate my mother somewhat now that I am in my 40's however it has been almost 20 years since we spoke...my father is dead and I know it is not wise to speak ill of the dead but he is rotting in hell I have no use for him

Sad to say that both my parents have past away. When alive, it was my Mother whom I best got along with. My Father enjoyed using his belt a little to often.

I get along with both -- I used to be on the rocks with both of them, at different times, for different reasons -- but as it is, I really appreciate them both now.

I get along with them both equally as well. It is just a different kind of get along with for each one.
