    Fearful

    I don't want anything to do with my dad.

    He left me and my mom when I was just a baby. It was hard trying to get through life without a fatherly figure. I hate it when I hear what my friends do with their dads on weekends and vacations. They'd ask me what I did with my dad and I would tell them to shut the hēll up and...

    My Father: Hitler Of The 21 Century

    If I could tell my dad anything, it would be to **** off and leave us all alone. We hate him so much. He acts like he owns us, including my stepmother. Like we are all his personal property to be used and abused. If something pleases him, which is rare, he's in a good mood for...

    My dad has always beaten me up

    since I was a kid. He hurls abuse at me in Bengali. He is evil and stupid. He never uses reason. According to him he's right and that's that. He shouts at me when I come home, when I come downstairs. I have no job (I'm trying so hard to get one) he takes my job seekers allowance...
