This year for Christmas, my father gave everybody gifts that he picked up at random (he admitted this), which, along with earlier behavior, has really upset some of us kids. He's been drinking and pretty much ignoring us while he dates his new squeeze, guilt-tripping us consciously, and basically showing no thought in his interactions with us at all. He got money from a former relative to take my sister and I out, and he spent it on repairing a second car he doesn't actually need, and he wanted to go spend the weekend with his girlfriend at her house when it was the last weekend he would see me for at least a year.|
In short, he's kind of acting like a teenager. He has been going through a divorce, but he's really hurting and worrying us, and since he's gone AWOL, I've basically had to parent my little sister yet again, and I don't think that's fair.
Should we talk to him, TQC?
