In a perfect world, dads would be the people we looked up to for guidance, who loved us unconditionally, and who always tried to make us smile. Sadly, real life doesn’t turn out that way. Your dad may be emotionally distant, an addict, or even abusive. To deal with a terrible dad, find ways to minimize the influence he has on you, care for yourself to recover emotionally,
See that he’s the problem, not you... No matter what your dad or anyone else says, you’re not responsible for his behavior. Your father is an adult, so he's responsible for himself.You can soften the influence your terrible father has on you by seeking out positive relationships with male role models.
