How often do you see your father?

My parents split up when I was 7. I see my mom almost every day. My dad lives about half hour away and he is re married and very busy. I find myself feeling guilty that I dont spend enought time with him.

  • I talk to my dad about once a week on the phone, we email sometimes and I see him about once a month, sometimes more if there are birthdays or holidays. He will probably stay the night on Christmas eve with us so he can see the kids in the morning. My mom passed away over 2 years ago, so its just him.

  • My father passed away when I was 8 yrs old, I am now 30 and it's still hard at times to believe he is no longer here. Epecially when big things happen such as graduating, getting married and having children.

  • My Dad cheated on my Mom while she was pregnant with me. Decided I wasn't his & left my Mom. When I was born he & his mother showed up & his mother told him I was for sure his cause I looked just like their family. I dont think he really cared So He was never around even though he lived 10 minutes away my whole life. Now that Im an adult he wants to be apart of stuff & I refuse to let a stranger who never cared about me into my life. He was pissed I didnt invite him to my wedding, & that I didnt tell him I was pregnant. I really dont believe it to be his business. He chose not to see me. He has two sons older than I am. One went to high school with my cousin & he always asked for pics of me. My other brother I went to High school with, we hang out all the time now! He even came to my wedding! Besides his new wife said she didnt want me or my mother around, & he accepted that. Not that he ever saw me before he married!

  • I see my dad about every other week but talk to him on the phone about every other day.. we are close :) same with my mom.. I love my parents and am so thankful to have them !
    You shouldn't feel guilty, everyone is busy and has their own schedules.. but maybe try and see him more or call him if it makes you feel bad that you dont... He should do the same as well.

  • I only get to see my parents 2-3 times a year since they live in FL and I'm in NY. I talk to either my mom or dad 1-2 times a day and every Sunday we use Skype so my parents can see my little guy!
