when i was a kid, my father was my hero; he was bringing home apples in winter and peaches in summer. then i grew up and we started to have fights about my "being at home" hours. for during more than the half of my life, i thought that my father was the last person that i could really understand and forgive for all that he's done to us. now I'm an adult and the hero is back on course. i began to love him more than ever. what is happening to me?

wow, I hope I could bring that back with me and my dad as well...we fight a lot now. We don't really communicate. I think he doesn't know anything about me anymore.BUt when I was a kid...I was a daddy's girl. Its hard to believe, that were like strangers with each other right now.

that was exactly what happened to us through my college years and afterwhile. I had almost lost my faith in him, i even started to question fatherhood. But somehow things have changed. I used to think he didn't know me at all just like you. But then it turned out that maybe he was the only one who does. Think about that. Hope it'll get better between you two.

The relationship between Father and Child is a strange one. When mum does something there is alway praise and thanks she is always complimented but what do Fathers get. No one ever says thank you for paying the mortgage, Thanks for buying the shopping, or thanks for the gas and electric. I know were a bit old fashioned in our house where I pay for everything my wife has gone back to collage which leave me with the day to day expences the holidays running the cars and so on. There are no thank you or praise what you do get is admiration of your children. As with all relationship there are times when the relationship falls down and you cant speak or you argue alot this isnt unique to father son or father daughter its all relationships

Nothing .. just love awake ! As I knew, fathers always love their daughters more than the mothers, and the mothers always love the sons more than the fathers. So if you father love you, that love never changes whatever fighting has happened between you and your father, and your love to your father never changes too.
