I am a 17 year old high school student and I haven't spoken to my father in over 5 years. He is the type of man that I want to run and hide from every time I see him. You may be thinking to yourself...why does this person hate their father so much? Well let me answer that for you, but I have to start from the beginning. When I was about 3 months old, my father decided it was a good idea to walk out on my mom, a mother with 3 kids and 2 jobs, with no time to find a babysitter or deal with my father's crap. After about 6 months my dad fought my mom for custody and guess what, he got what he wanted. Me and my brother were forced to visit him every other weekend and Wednesdays, and in the summer we were with him EVERY weekend and Wednesdays which gave us only 4 days a week to see our mom. My father is medically unstable to have a job, so what made the court think he was stable to support 2 kids?! He is bipolar and Schizophrenic, and when he forgot to take his pills he would get angry and take it out on my brother and I. When I was 13 my older brother (16) wanted to go to a friends house but my dad didn't like that idea. To keep him at his house he pushed him against the wall and kneed him in the groin, my brother then ran out of the house and went to my grandma's house where my mom was. My dad forced me to get into the car so we could follow my brother. When we turned the corner to my grandma's house my dad was driving so fast that he almost rolled the car. The cops were called and they did nothing. But I wasn't going to stand for that. So at 13 I took my father to court to fight for my mom to only have custody of me, my dad's lawyer didn't like that very much. In court I was scared, I was pulled into the judges chambers and I was told to tell my story of why I didn't want to see my dad anymore, and being 13 and telling this story of course I cried. But in the end the judge decided to not make me go with him anymore, he said that I can visit my dad on my terms meaning when and where I wanted to. Now that I am 17 I couldn't be happier about that decision I made not to see him anymore. I do still see him around town and he talks to me and acts like nothing even happened. He also said that if I want him to give me a car I have to visit him. (I never even asked for a car) Anyways! That's my story haha byeee
