    Talk to him.

    Not the confrontational, emotional kind at the last minute.

    Tell him you and he need some alone time, not now, not here, set a dinner date somewhere you both like, and can talk (not overly loud or distracting).

    This actually works really, really good most of the time. It is a scenario dad's can relate too.

    Practice your skills.

    Try and get into something that your interested in, but also know your dad likes, that'll bring his attention.

    Take it from there...

    i don't necessarily have this problem with my dad, but perhaps try being more like your sisters. or hanging around them more when your father is around. (:

    You should bond with him more, try to connect and talk. Tell him how you feel and ask him if he will.
