I'm honestly not sure if I could pick; I would probably tell them that I can't do it.
If I had to, though, I would go with whichever parent was best suited to take care of me at that age. I'd also consider the surroundings, and whether or not living with that parent would work out. I then would have a talk with the other parent and explain to them just how much I love them, and that my decision doesn't mean I love them any less than the other parent. I'd let them know why I decided that way in a very delicate manner. I wouldn't want to break either parents' heart by being rude or blunt about it.
After that, I'd hope they both understand and that things work out.
I would ask them to not make me choose.. but if i absolutely had to I would probably choose my mom, just because i connect with her better on an emotional level. though you would also have to see who would be financially able to take care of more than one, and pay there own bills.
megan thats a tough call for a 13year old i guess.. if i were younger i would pick my dad because he gives me all the financial stuffs and my mom...
a decent mom. teaches you what toexpect from life.
that is difficult. i would talk to my parents and let them know you don't want to have to choose between them, but if that doesn't work i guess you can choose the one you think is better for you
I think that I would have tried to keep in contact with both. Like, living with one parent and visiting the other in school vacations and sleeping over at weekends.
I, personally, would make a list of the pros and cons if I were you. Be like, "Dad is more patient and mature, but Mom can make a mean sandwich."
i wish i could but i would be across country
I can't choose, I love both.
