As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuh brother,
May Allah reward your concern for your parents are your persistence in making du’a to see them out of their difficulties. It is unfortunate that as their child you are also suffering as much as they are for the problems that are between them and it is even effecting your schooling.
Firstly, my advice is to never give up on your du’a. Continue asking Allah to guide them. Allah is hearing everything and will answer your prayer in the most perfect way when the time is right. You just need to have complete faith that Allah will do this. Once you have this firm faith you will find you distress eased to some extent in the confidence that Allah will rescue them.
However, in the mean time, this does not take away the fact that it is very distressing for you to be seeing every day. It is important that you do what you can to take care of yourself. Give yourself some space to think of something other than your parents. Do something that enjoys.
If there are any clubs at school that you can join then in would encourage you to do so. This will provide you with a positive distraction from your parents’ behaviour as well as the chance to do something motivating with yourself. Having this little bit of positivity in your life will support you psychologically in dealing with the difficulties you face at home.
At 13 there is little you can do directly to help your parents (except to continue with your du’a and show them both your love towards them), but you might consider asking your local imam about the situation so that he could support you and mutually intervene in supporting your parents through their difficulties.
It is a challenge for you as much as it is for them and Allah will reward you for remaining steadfast during this time and will bring ease to you.
May Allah reward you and bring you ease during these testing times. May He put love between your parents and make them the coolness of each other’s eyes and you of theirs.
