Question My dad had been keeping secrets, Help - April 25th 2011, 12:51 PM

I just found out that my dad has been keeping secrets from me and my brother like smoking and taking drugs. Also he just got engaged to someone me and my brother hate. I have never really been close to him because I mostly live with my mum but I think I should tell him about how we feel and what we know. Though I'm not sure what to do... Help

Erin,

You're in a difficult position. I think that it would be a good thing that you tell your father what you know and how it's making you feel. Then again, he might not be too happy that you know things that were meant to be kept a secret. I would also talk to your mom as well. Get her opinion on it. It might help you a bit. But either way, it's ALWAYS good to let people know how you are feeling. If you don't like the woman your father is marrying, then you should tell him. Give him reasons as to why you don't like her. I know you want your dad to be happy, so maybe you can compromise? You can try and get to know his fiance. Try to look for the good qualities in here, rather than focusing on the things you don't like about her. Your dad loves her, so there has to be something good there.

Thanks for the advice, I will try to speak with him soon. I asked my mum about it and she said me and my brother weren't suppost to know. Also what I missed out is that his fiance told me when he was at work, so my mum is pissed with her. I have a feeling that my mum is going to be arguing with him again because that is all they seem to do since he got engaged without telling us. But I will see how it goes.
