Seriously?? He's my dad and all but WHAT A JERK!!!
It's always an unsettling epiphany when we realize these things about our parents isn't it? I remember the time I realized my mother was an extremely selfish and rather self centered person. I seriously thought the world was going to stop spinning when I admitted it to myself
Agreed. I learned before I was 10 that my dad was not a good person and while sure we had a few moments where we could get along, I just really didn't like the guy very much and thought my mom deserved a lot better and kept wishing they'd divorce.
Then when I was a teen I started learning more and more about the kind of woman my mother was and realized she wasn't a very nice person either. I'm not even sure if they like each other but they'll never divorce.
But anyway as for the OP's father, well...I'm thinking it's one of those times when it gets worse before it gets better. I hate to say it but it really is like trying to teach a small child to stop doing something naughty. They're going to keep doing it to test their limits till they truly get "This is not allowed."
My 2 year old spent more time in time out yesterday than he spent out of it but he will learn to listen when mama says "No".
