My parents have been shouting at each other lately. There has been one bad events that has happened and some not so good events that are supposed to happen in a few weeks. So how do I ignore this shouting. My parents do shout at each other at very bad times. Believe me there were even badder events that happened some years ago and my parents did do some shouting at each other at that time too. Believe me things are getting better and the shouting will stop but still there is a good amount of time for that so how do I ignore the shouting?

    If you rupture your eardrums, you wouldn't hear them anymore. Seriously though, space noise works for me.

    @rutee07 What is space noise.

    Ear plugs, loud music.

    There’s also emancipation. You can become a legal adult and move into your own apartment where there is less shouting and more peace and quiet.

    @iiii Or loud speakers and music. Might also disrupt the shouting itself for a bit - I see it as a win

    @AkshayTolwani Nah blast them, they're doing their shouting on your back.

    Remember this:

    If your family disregards you, disregard them back.

    @SortOfTested In my experience, alcohol doesn't make the shooting less loud or painful, but it can get emotionally linked, which made me want to kill myself whenever I drank for years after the quarrels ended.

    @kescherRant Nah I will stick to headphones and loud music. Gonna spend a good mount of time on spotify until everything goes back to normal

    Using earplugs/ear defenders if you want silence or earphones/headphones with music loud enough that you can't hear them (although setting it too loud will damage your ears even as a minor).
    If you can, close doors in between you and your parents (even if they aren't thick to filter enough noise) and perhaps think of looking into audio treatment (at least those that will reflect or absorb sound coming from outside).

    I find that noise-cancelling headphones to be the easiest (and yet effective) solution but depending on how well treated your room is (including window glassing, wall/door thickness), you may still hear people screaming and outside noise (especially if you've got an above-average noise sensitivity like me).
