    Hmmm... i just had argument with my dad and i just ended up crying rather then shouting. i used to just shout but it seems ive calmed down away from that now. Also by not shouting it tends to get me in less trouble, even though granted a gd shout makes you feel so much better!!
    it does! do you say sorry afterwards for yelling though?

    Debatable question. im a strong willed person but yet very emotional at the mo lol. so yes i do say sorry IF i have said sumat horrid and hurt feelings. i am also learning to admit when i am wrong. much to the credit of an adult friend who puts me straight about respecting parents. saying sorry is very hard though for a shy person like me but it needs to be done. usually say sorry after i have calmed down a lot.

    I just sit down, relax and then decide to either forgive them or hold a personal vendetta against them.

    i argue loads with my family all the time, they are really liberal with me, yet i somehow seem to still nark them all the time. it's got into a routine where we argue, i explain my point a few mins later, then walk away. couple of hours later i'll just act civil, after a few days, if its dad, we'll start talking again. if it's mum, we make up pretty quickly. they always get annoyed that i never spend enough time with any of them, i'm always out with my friends etc. dad doesn't mind it if i'm in work all day though, or if i'm revising. think he's just a little reluctant to change- because we moved so many times i didn't have a huge social life as a kid, it only really grew a few years ago, so i was always stuck with the family. he moans how other families are always going on holiday 3 times a year....what he doesn't realise is that when they go on holiday, they spend time apart...the kids do their own thing etc. when we go on hol, i don't do that.

    perhaps your family are trying to do that? as for the *we don't like the way you dress* thing, i'm sure thats just a way your mum can stay mad at you, when she initially argued she probably realised how petty it sounded, and wanted to justify her anger at you by getting moody over something else?

    apologising is always a good way to go, however if they take it badly remember that in case you end up arguing again....try a diffeent approach then. i never bother apologising to my dad, he doesn't to me, we just have a mutual unspoken understanding.

    my mum seems to be the only person i have arguments with nowadays...

    it's either me being rebellious, or everyone else is too sensible to rise to the bait...

    IM actually surprised at how rarely I get into rows with anyone, but when I do they are usually over really stupid things. What I do is wait until the whole thing blows over.
