I was just pondering… do Fathers like their daughters more then their son’s?
During all this with my sis, my Dad has really been hit hard. Mom has been logical science. When John was falling apart last month Mom was really upset and trying to convince John that he needed help. But Dad is the one who took the hard line with the no non-sense and really got John into rehab.
When my sis tells my parents “no big… all is well”
Mom always seems fine with it, but Dad always thinks there’s something more. (That could be because he reads this site too.) I do tend to lean on her a lot. I’m going to have to stop doing that. For a while she was my ONLY connection to the world outside my head.
But I was afraid after this Mom and Dad would want Riley at their home. Mom said no, John was moving in so my sis should stay with me and keep helping me. Dad was thinking John should go to a half way house and my sis should live at their home. Mom gets her way on this, which is good for me and how I would have wanted it too. I am just really pondering how OK my parents have been NOT having my sister under their roof. It makes me wonder if they like her.
