Niether you nor his wife will ever be able to change him, you two can only change the way you are and the way you relate/react to him. Tell your mom to get some help, and hire a maid!
> Hi, my dad is a nine and I guess he's super unhealthy. He's been married to my mom for 13 years ( I'm 22, not 13) and now my mom a 6 wants to leave him with her 3 small children. My dad is so lazy, thoughtless, selfish, unappreciating, unactualizing, rude and a total waste of skin. He is the only dad I know and the father of my siblings, so I do love him and he is a good person I know he is just very unhealthy. My mom and I are close and he knows she's been talking to me about it so he's been kissing my butt. When she tries to tell him that the relationship is not working he says "quit being so dramatic, everything is fine." She'll say she's exausted and can't continue to work full time anymore and look after the kids and clean the house and pay the bills and make the meals and take the kids to their various sports and help them with their homework etc. etc. He says "Oh well your just perfect aren't you!?" He works 4 days on, 4 days off and on those 4 days off he reads, sleeps, watches t.v and that's it. It's gotten so bad that the other week my 12 year old brother had to help my mom carry a dresser upstairs for my little sister, my dad mean while sitting on the couch reading the entire time. I live 7 hours away from them, I don't really know how to help and I'm extremely frustrated. If there are any 9s reading this, please, please, please give me some sort of explanation as to how someone could do this to their family and how one might beable to overcome it.! I'm also open to suggestions from anyone else!!!!!!!
