How does a spouse handle a parental tirade from the other spouse?

I am finding it extremely difficult to handle my wife's parental tirades. I have gone through different phases of actions. First I would get into my vehicle and drove away ( this isn't good), I have argued back and even got violent( this too doesn't work) I have just sat and listened but gave no response ( I end up withdrawing and that isn't good)I can;t seem to talk in an adult manner with her and I think she may have the I'm ok you're not ok position, therefore she feels she is right most the time and doesn't take to much discussions.
