I think you might have to accept your dad is the way he is. Instead of trying to change him completely, I suggest you concentrate on getting his support for stopping you brothers’ verbal abuse. That’s probably the most significant single change he could make.
Your brothers should be taught to respect women in general; you and your mother in particular.
I’m not sure if my relationship with my dad can actually get better. He never spends time with us, but I hate him so much that I don’t even want anything to do with him. He vapes in the house and lies about it, even though I’ve tried everything to get him to stop, and I’m glad when he’s not home cause I don’t even want to see him. I have to force myself to answer when he does talk to me. How can things get better if he refuses to change, and refuses to admit his faults?
My dad never stops shouting at me. I usually spend the day in my room doing normal teenage stuff, which seems normal as I'm a teenager. But it seems like a problem to my father. He storms into my room and starts shouting way to close to my ear that I need to spend my time watching tv with him. He then proceeds to literally destroy my room to see what I was doing. Yesterday he broke the last present one of my best friends gave me before she died in a car accident. I'm desperate. Can you help me?
My dad is always miserable! He always puts out a bad feeling in the room when he's in his depressed state. He constantly talks negatively about my mom and how we never do anything right. I don't hate him like he always says, but I get very frustrated when he's in these mood swings. But when he's not depressed or angry, he can be really fun! What can I do to get him to stop being miserable all the time?
