Question Corner: Parents Arguing

When my mom and dad argue, I feel very worried and sad. What can I do?

Friend Magazine, 2016/07 Jul

You can say a prayer to help your mom and dad get over their problem and hum some Church songs to make you feel better.

My siblings and I go to our rooms and listen to the Tabernacle Choir. This has helped us feel peace.

You can pray to Heavenly Father. That always makes me feel better.

To make them happy I would tell them funny jokes and tell them how school is. When they start laughing, I feel the Holy Ghost telling me I did the right thing.

Max: I would give them hugs and sing them a Primary song to remind them of Jesus.

Gabe: Make your parents feel better by drawing a picture of your family in heaven.

Max and Gabe C., ages 6 and 10, Kochi, India

I would pray to Heavenly Father and ask Him to help my parents when they argue so they can feel the Spirit and solve their problems.
