The Love of a FATHER
August 31, 2009 2:20am CST
I saw this clip of an autistic genius. And he could not do anything without his father. His father brush his teeth, bathe him, dress him, put on his socks and shoes, basically do everything for him. Hes father is turning 80 and the son is 54. No other family member. As Kim says " my father and I share the same shadow ". The predicament is, now that his father is turning 80 and we can say hes dying.. What will happen to the son now that cannot even put on his coat all by himself..? We really have to treasure our parent's (sob)

you have a great discussion but i am happy to have found it for your discussion is on the lovers interest. it was intriguing to read what it is. back to the discussion, i am a father of a three year old kid and his pictures appears as my avatar. me and my father, we dont have any good relationship. he was never a good father figure for me. i am first born of 5 siblings. and now that i am a fatehr i am doing all the things that would make my son proud of me and give him all of the available time i have. what is scary now that his dad is aging and he has nobody to be with, this is really painful sod too. welcome to the wonderful world of mylot

Yeah it's really sad.. When I was younger I also find my father as a dictator.. I feared him rather than respect him.. So I basically cry when I see a movie that relates to a Love of a Father to his Children. Maybe because I thought that my father did not love me at all.. But now as I am older I may have understand that some person don't really know how to express love. But they do. trust me.. DO you still talk with your father.?

we still talk because i am civil with him, but if i wont say anything to him i dont talk, if i start talking i will end up listening on how good he is on things that he handles except parenting. he was never proud of what we are and what we achieved. he looks at us like little people who are big losers. so whats there to talk about. maybe your dad was a dictator for the good of you and your siblings. but in my case its all different. you will not understand it clearly unless it happens to you. that is no longer important for me now being a good dad for my son is what is important.
