My Dad is very ignorant of me. What are good ways to get him to like me and lie less?

He also is a chronic liar.

    You can't do that. Firstly, although any *good* parent should be loving, kind, supportive, encouraging, etc. of their children, the reality for many is, the exact opposite. Getting someone to like you, is impossible for a person who hates themselves. They don't have any room whatsoever, for their own needs, let alone someone else.

    So to change that, YOU need to become the one who gives the 'likes' to yourself - and I'm not talking in a Facebook way, either. You have to be the father of your own inner child/innocence, so that you build up a healthy self-esteem, feel less neglected/unwanted or whatever, and start to function as the kind of man/woman you'd wish to be, as an adult. Even if you're not one, yet. His lies won't stop, either.

    You really can't. 

    If he is not understanding you, and gets manipulative.

    You will need to distance yourself from now on. It's ok not to be close with certain parents.

    Do you click more with your mom?

    Try having a beer with your dad?

    Just hang out?
