Unhappy Dramatic Family. - November 2nd 2009, 01:56 AM

So my Dad just came home after being away for 4 years going to rehab. My mom and I live at my grandmother's house temporarily, and he just came to live with us here. At first when he came home, me and him were really bonding and watching TV together. Now it seems that me and him have become more isolated. Lately the smallest things have been setting my dad's temper off, including a few days ago when I just put some empty plastic bags on the couch, and he yelled at me to not throw things. He thinks I'm 6 and he's very temperamental and selfish. Yesterday was halloween and my parents gave me some chocolate and candy as a present. My mom said to give my dad a hug, and I was going to, but he said it's ok and just smiled. Now today my mom is saying that I am tearing my family apart because I did not hug him! I don't understand, he said I didn't have to. I'm trying to be nice, I ate dinner with my family today and my dad just rushed off after 5 mins to go and watch TV. Please help me! My mom and dad are mad at me and I don't know why. I really don't want this to tear the friendship that I have with my mother apart.

Judging by your mom's reaction to the whole hugging issue, I think she reacted on that one and it wasn't necessarily your fault. I don't blame you, he's been away 4 years afterall, right? Just stay calm throughout the next little while. Make sure your mom knows how you feel about the whole thing, that's important too.
