  • Tell him to shut his damn both. He's her dad and should love her for who she is not who he wants her to be.

  • It's good to talk to him to find out why he thinks this way.

  • On what grounds does he disagree? Religious? If so, I don't know how you can give him another point of view.

  • It's his daughter. If he thinks there's something "wrong" with her, remind him that she is a product of his DNA and perhaps HE is the defective one!!!

  • You sound like you're doing all the right things. He might just need to be told that he needs to get over it, whatever his reasons.

  • Tough one. Has she told him also? If it came down to it personally I would side with my child even if it meant him moving out. What a terrible place to live if your dad constantly degraded you because of how you were born?! Children come first in my opinion good luck
