I really wish I had some advice for you, but I don't. I'm so sorry that you have to go through this. I imagine it's very difficult at any age for your parents to separate, especially if one of them is emotionally unstable. I just wanted you to know that you are in my prayers.

I dont know what to tell you, I have never been through a parent's divorce. I think you should keep checking on your dad and maybe encourage him to seek help. If he does make a actual threat, then you need to call the police on him so they can get him and take him to the hospital for an evaluation, that way he cant fight them or getting the help. I hate for it to come down to that, but to get help, that maybe what it takes. Dont give up on him.

My parents divorced when I was five, so your situation is not quite like mine. However, my DF's parents divorced about three years ago, and he's had to help out his dad as well. His mom divorced his dad because of money issues, and Jason's dad was just devastated. What Jason did to help his dad was to just be there for him, and take him out to dinner, play poker (their favorite thing to do together) or go bowling.

My suggestion is to just be there for him, and talk to him a lot. Help him through it; be a caring daughter.

I have been through this numerous times!! My parents have been divorced 2 times and remarried 3 times. I was younger though. I
found out which I had known for awhile and mom wouldn't listen to
me that he was cheating on her for like the millionth time and it has
taken to now for me to love my dad again and I remember just
holding my mom and comforting her and hating my dad for doing that.
OK sorry that wasn't really the answer to your question....IDK that
there is anything else you can do bc he is going to grieve and he is
going to hurt and all you can do is be there for him if he needs you.

AAJM91705 I see you're banned... if you are still reading this - hang in there. It's tough to go through but there are lots of options if you need to talk - try a local line, they can help you feel better and maybe have some great resources for you... Take care.
