    I Find My Dad Annoying, But At The Same Time, I Really Want To Spend Time With My Dad

    I Come From An Asian Family, And Stereo-Types Are Stereo-Types, But If You Came Here, All You Would Hear About Is Grades, Good Jobs, And Sometimes, Weight-Loss. Anyway, The Reason I Find My Dad Annoying, Is Because He Just HAS To Check What I'm Doing On My Laptop. When I'm In My...

    Politics :(

    My father and I have an awful relationship based on one primary point: Politics. I know this isn't supposed to get in the way of relationships, familial or not, but it's at the point where I have a feeling he doesn't even respect my point of view. Dad was...

    Sad Daddy

    The relationship, or lack of, that I shared with both of my parents scarred me for much of my life. Mum was always drunk, at work, or screaming at her kids. Her lifestyle killed her a little over 10 years ago. When she was dying I could still feel that she had nothing but...

    ...but my father is a coward.

    He made mistakes as we all do, but instead of trying his best to protect his own from these mistakes, he blamed the very ones that loved him. He has taken everything beautiful in his life and has painted it with hate. He has bullied his children and beat every wife he's had. But...
