Well then, I guess it's time to crack out the Ben & Jerry's, braid each other's hair, and watch Bridget Jones' Diary all night long.

It has to be rough for him to go through a divorce and then have his girlfriend also turn out to be another rough relationship. I'm not excusing his behavior, but try to help him through it. Good luck, OP.

Try to be more supportive, or at least understanding of his feelings. Everyone handles pain differently and if this was a serious relationship for him, it may take awhile to get over the loss of it.

I agree with you, #2. Parents aren't as invincible as their children like to think. Just because they're parents doesn't make them immune to pain and it doesn't mean they're able to fix any problem.

The poor man! It's amazing how even the craziest, most disrespectful of significant others will seem like the absolute best when you're with them long enough. Help him cope with it the best you can, OP. It's about all you can do for now. Good luck and I hope things turn around for you!

How do you know that the kid isn't the one overreacting.Teenagers are notorious for being melodramatic and insensitive.It is quite possible that OP isn't helping the situation. They would mope if it was one of their trivial relationships wouldn't they?And they would expect their dad to be understanding,therefore they should do the same. Besides,even though he is upset it doesn't mean that he isn't performing his duties as a parent.

Obviously your dad must be very sweet and caring if he's so worked up about his "psycho" girlfriend not talking to him anymore. Some people dig that whole being treated like shit and majority of them who dig that are kind hearted. Tell your dad to go do stuff with you and get his mind off that female. Yeah breakups suck, but no need to get depressed when you have kids! I agree with your last sentence but you could atleast try to cheer him up instead of being a bystander watching him an
