WTH is wrong with loser dads?

My nephew is a really great kid, but his dad is a total loser and I feel so bad for my nephew...he will see his dad logged onto the messenger but his dad won't say sh!t to him, or he will call before Christmas to make plans but never followed through NOR did he send anything or EVEN call! My nephew is getting used to it, but I feel like I should say something, but what?? Input please..

  • Have you tried to talking to his mother? I would start there and if you still feel the need to voice your opinion, do it in a tactful and civil manner but know that it still might not change things. JMO.

  • Don't get involved...that is between them he will find out sooner or later what kind of a dad he has if you say something he will look at you as the bad guy. Just comfort him when you see him down. Be the better person. GL

  • oh yea, I've talked to his mom she is just going to let him seperate himself from his dad, which he is better off doing, I just wish I had something meaningful to say to him so he won't hold any sadness/anger inside...thanks for the replies ladies
