It must be hard â€œraisingâ€ parents who fight like cats and dogs and who behave like five-year-olds.
Meet the parents of Lindsay Lohan: Michael and Dina.

These two guys are definitely not making it easy for Lindsay to finish her rehab after a wild Memorial Day weekend during which she crashed her Mercedes-Benz into a curb.
She was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and was photographed slumped in the passenger seat of a friendâ€™s car.
Her pestilent parents could be one of the major reasons why Lindsay is behaving badly.
Michael and Dina Lohan still arenâ€™t divorced. Theyâ€™re constantly going back and forth over who did what and who gets what. They even argued over who would get the pink copy and who would get the yellow copy of a document they signed. â€œI canâ€™t imagine, given what Iâ€™ve just heard, that the two of you agree on anything,â€ lamented Judge Robert Ross who called them during their divorce conference last week.
The next battle, set for July 27th will be an attempt by Michael to prove that Dina didnâ€™t live up to the agreement set forth in their separation arrangement. If he can do that then he can prevent things from going to divorce proceedings.
They also have legal dealings to tend to in Nassau County Family Court. Dina is trying to prevent Michael (who was released from prison earlier this year for aggravated unlicensed driving and attempted assault) from seeing their younger children. And Michael is fighting it tooth and nail.
No wonder Lindsay has elected to stay in rehab longer than she had planned. She doesnâ€™t have much to look forward to when she gets out.
