You serve a valid point but I want to add something. This is all hypothetical of course but... Say OPs a misbehaving person who is rebellious and stays out late and parties and that causes them to fall behind in life (school, work, church, etc). Now, say OP's boyfriend is a good person who never parties, never stays out late and is an overachiever in the overall sense, then technically OP is the "bad influence". For all we know, OP's predilections are chugging energy drinks and back talking, maybe not necessarily the worse case scenario. . . Or maybe dad really is just a dick and didn't like the boyfriend. Follow up required here.
I think you made a very good point! Children are generally a reflection of the morals they were taught. however. The father could've instilled good values and did his job and OP could be "one of those people" who is a "bad seed". my brother and I were raised exactly the same but he is thoughtless, selfish at times, makes poor life choices like being engaged 2 times in 12 months to two different women, does drugs, can't hold a steady job, has no work ethic, was discharged from the army for a failed PT which he failed on purpose, complains all day that he does work, and doesn't pay for anything for himself. I don't do drugs, don't have any children, never been married, im in a committed long term relationship, have my own place, drug free, work hard, and am trying to finish school. Honestly if OP is a bad influence on a good person then I applaud OPs father for saying something and clearing the bfs life of a parasite that will keep him from reaching his own goals. however if OPs father is just being over reactive then OP needs to tell him where his place is and that's not in her relationships.
If your own father thinks you're a bad influence it might be time to rethink some of your choices
What on earth did you do that made your dad think your boyfriend needed better?
