I haven't talked to mine in 2 years when my mom said some shit about my gf being a Jew and my dad tried to fight me defending her. After I dropped his ass for trying to choke me he called the cops like a fucking coward.

Haven't spoken to my mom for a decade. She spent most of my teenaged years neglecting me and then gaslighting me about it, and when her boyfriend tried to stab a fork through my hand and she made excuses for him I knew it was time to go.

distance. this can be difficult depending on your age and economic status but its the only way i can bear to speak to my mother now.

It took moving out of my house, and not seeing my parents much for a few years to become friendly with them. Distance is the most important. I think that me avoiding them for a while made my dad reconsider being an asshole all the time. We're friendly enough now that they have no control over my life.

Distance and limited contact. I try to be polite at all times, but ever since I figured out their pattern of manipulation I have enforced my boundaries.
