Do you like your parents?

I don't like my father as a person. Our values are completely different and we have nothing in common, I actually have no idea how I was raised by a person like him because we are so different. My dad is uneducated, racist, selfish..... and I consider myself to be a humanitarian, I'm not sure how that happened. If he wasn't my father, I would have no interest in being part of his life.

  • I absolutely ADORE my mother and my stepfather (daddy) Now my bio-dad is a totally different story...If he was to fall off the face of the earth my first reaction would be "What??? The earth is flat???? Wow we've had it wrong all this time"

  • Meh. My mom and I get along much better now that I have children. But we didn't talk for years and we were both happy with things that way. I haven't spoke to my dad in years, he doesn't even know I have kids.

  • I'm so sorry for you for that, I know it must be hard feeling that way. In my case I can attest to having THE MOST PERFECT parents, my childhood was awesome. Full of love, understanding, compassion..........I love bragging on that fact. We of course had issues here and there, but every family does. Both my parents are passed now (been about 5 for mom and 3 for dad), I miss them each and every day.
