My dad loves to argue a lot and it get's pretty bad when he gets loud and says hurtful things. I thought that things where going good but he always ends up flipping out and hurting me? I don't think I can take being around a person who I have to watch what I say even topics that aren't even a big deal can end up going in the ditch? So if you had a father who always found fault in everyone. And couldn't agree to disagree, what would you do?

anonymous: My dad is in his early 50's and I feel middle aged people should set the example and be kind to the people he loves even when he doesn't agree.
mrsfarris : When I think about him and being around him I cry because I can't fix another person or make them change. We've had many discussions and the last one ended up with him going off on me so I feel as if he's made it impossible. I shouldn't have to be stressed out at the thought of being around him. You're right too it does suck.

Izzyscrazymom Yes he is my dad but I feel that family is what you make it. A person cannot be abusive in disrespectful and expect people to be around because they're family. I want quality people in my kids life not ones that they have to walk on eggs shells around. I've had many talks with him and he's the type that thinks he's always right and that everyone else is the problem. I can't keep talking to someone who chooses to not see what is so clear to everyone else. Honestly I can say I will not miss him because he lives in the same town is retired and they don't visit even monthly to show that they actually do care about us. I am sorry that you have a father who is addicted and that you have to miss him everyday. Hopefully you can get through this tough time.
