You were MUCH kinder with your dad than I was with my mom. Of course the mother-daughter dynamic is so different.
I have tried the blowing up root, but that is followed by "Oh stop being so dramatic, calm down, you make so much of things." I did say also that I was changing my approach and that I am usually told that so I was trying a different root. It actually seemed to work briefly and my mother followed my lead, until she told him he should stop telling me what to do and I said, well you tell him what to do also... and we had both used "you" statements and it all went down hill from there until there was silence. I pointed out our process to get to that and how hurtful it was and how I really needed to work on it and invited them to do the same...
