How do you stop somebody from screaming? Today, I try to tell my mom I want to talk with her calmly. I even sweetly suggest we have a heart to heart talk and the minute I say something she disagrees with, she screams and yells in an almost violent way. Then, I have to raise my voice to either get her to stop or to get my point across. Even when I have broken down in tears and I beg her to stop and I beg her for peace and a hug, the screaming still won't stop. She shouts, "Leave me alone!!" Things were bad before, but never this bad. She has reached an all time high or should I say low? I have thought that maybe if I need to discuss anything serious with her I am better off writing it in a letter. Otherwise I should keep the conversation light. What do you all think?
