    In regards to arguing with your mom, when you're not fighting each other remember that the punishment is not worth it. If you remember this enough when you're not fighting you will remember this when you are. Imagine going to hell because of an assignment. When you speak to her just try to calm down.

    I know when you're angry you won't be able to remember this unless you've thought about it a lot before. Just practice calming down in your head. Imagine getting into an argument or getting annoyed at something that happened and reminding yourself it's not worth it. Ask yourself if this is worth being questioned over on the day of judgement. Do this a lot and you will be able to do it when these times come. Imagining doing something is a lot like doing it. Just practice.

    Your mom has a level above you, as a parent. You have to be tolerant.

    Try to back down a little, and with respect. That is best.

    Give your mom a break. She's already a single mom, working hard to support her kids etc. you should be nice to her just because and not add on to her stress.

    And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. (17:23)

    When I read this, I get upset because I think of my mother. I knew we humans always try to think we're right, just calm down and drink water. Always remember your talking to your mother and heaven is at her feet.

    To be honest, when I get home I am going to give my parents a big hug.
