    I don't talk to him. I try to avoid him

    as much as possible, but that pretty damn hard to do when I live under the same roof as him. He's a narcissist who tries to live through his children and control everyone around him. He acts like a child himself. He likes to instigate arguments through meaningless ad hominem...

    My dad only had me because his mother said she

    wanted grandchildren. As a result he never loved me, just saw me as a burden to get rid of at 16. He wants me to solve all his problems etc. but never cares or helps me with any problems I have. When I ask for help he just says nothing and walks away and that makes me feel like...

    Growing up my dad would physically abuse my mom,

    he'd hit her throw stuff at her, to the point it'd scare me and my sisters. My mom left my dad when I was 15 and it was the best thing that has happened to me.

    My father has 5 children from 5 different women

    and to add to that he beats up women. He only cares about money and his job. When i was 13 we got into a huge argument, he was so mad he hit me and locked me in the room. I swore from that day on i would NEVER set foot in his house ever again. I HATE MY DAD

    I mean I don't hate him.

    ... But I don't love him either. My dad works hard for us. He's the only income maker in the family. He has to support four people and himself. That makes five. He tries to give us the things we want. But he doesn't at the same time. Does that make sense? My parents, I don't...

    so bad when the case of a child being spanked appeared on the TV... maybe I should refresh his memory? Maybe he forgot what he used to do with me when I was a child, he spanked me every day too. I remember that I always used long clothes to go to the school to hide my hematomas...
