Respectful disagreement

Is your dad telling you to stop crying and toughen up? How do you get him to listen?

Respectful disagreement

If you want to stand up for yourself to your Dad then you have to do it in a respectful way. Talking back in a disrespectful way will only start a fight and you wont get your message through clearly. Talking with your dad about how you interact cannot be forced because you are is son so he will not be forced from his son but if you work something out and come to an agreement together then now you are earning his respect.

Thats how men work things out, by understanding each other and making sure that the right thing is done. You have to make him believe that you are trying to live your life the best way that you can and it would make it a lot easier if you had him on your side.

Also make sure that you have privacy when you are talking about that stuff so you can have a man to man talk and not be interupted or hold anything back because someone else is in the room.

Yelling or screaming will not work it will only get you in hot water and will shut off any future mature conversations that you can have with your father.Always show respect to your parents even if you disagree with them.

I had a brother growing up that used to argue with my dad a lot about anything. He would never try to have a conversation just say it was dumb and he wouldnt do it. My father and hip butted head like a couple of rams his entire childhood. Its funny because we just had a family bbq and my brother apologized for being so rude to him growing up and they hugged it out it was really sweet. He said he wished he would have listened more and not argued as much and things would have been a lot more peaceful in our home.

Never a fist fight but a lot of yelling and screaming when we didnt agree on something.We were and are still very hard headed men in out family and all those disagreements believe or not helped us understand each other a little better each time.

Almost but my mom and sister stopped it. It would have ruined our relationship for a long time so im glad they were they to step in. We never got along growing up but as men now we see eye to eye.
