Dad and christmas time - December 24th 2010, 03:09 AM

On boxing day 24 years ago, my dads mum died.. I feel so horrible because most people are so happy and cheerful this time of year and my dad absolutely hates it, he is always so down, i wish i knew what to do.. but i dont and i just try to enjoy myself.. even though hes probably hurting.
And it makes it worse for me that my mum doesnt even care she calls him an uptight prick and things, she thinks he should at least pretend for his childrens sake... but i'm old enough that it doesnt bother me, i'd rather him be happy.. i wish i could do something aobut it..

I think you should just be there for your mom and dad...tell your dad how much you love him and how your sorry that he lost his mom but tell your mom she doesn't need to worry about you adn your sibling's happiness bc you understand his mourning and you love him no matter how sad he gets....it my be a bit of a burden but it's not like you have to hug him just to keep him from crying..and if you can tell your mom how you love her a lot too but the bigger burden is seeing the two of your parents argue over this sitution is probably more stressful and burdensome for you than your dad's sorrow than maybe she'd feel better...i think she's probably just sick of being around it bc she's probably the one he turns to the most for comfort over it and she feels bad but after a while can't handle the responsibility just bc of all the children she has to take care of and jobs she has to tend to..she could just be stressed about hte holidays too..idk
