Re: Parents

hey @Dyl and welcome
if seeing your dad is something youd like to do but to afraid to tell your mum in person, perhaps writing her a letter letting her know you like to see him might be a good starting point?

also if you put an @ in front of a members name itll tag them for you

Re: Parents

Hi @Dyl,

 

Sorry to hear you haven't seen your dad in 4-5 years. That must be tough for you. Were you close with him?

Are you comfortable talking with your mum? Maybe she would understand if you told her how you feel about not seeing your dad and then something could be arranged so you could see him?

Re: Parents

Hi there @Dyl 

Sorry to hear that you haven't seen your dad in a long time. I can imagine how hard it must be for you.

I understand missing family as I am going though a somewhat similar experience. My parents divorced recently and its been tricky for everyone. I miss my sisters. The youngest is only 2 years old and I haven't seen her for about 10 days now.. She's coming for a visit on Saturday for a few hours and I can hardly wait. My parents can't stand each other so I get how even saying you miss one of them can cause a negative reaction.. the best thing would be for your mother to understand that children love and need both parents. I hope that this is the case for you so that talking to her about it can be easier.

When are you next scheduled to see your dad? How about you give him a phone call in the meantime?

My heart goes out to you @Dyl
