    Any advice, my dad has just told me he's moving out and wants to keep in contact with him. This couldn't of come at a worser time as results are realised tomorrow. Any advice would be great, Thanks

    That's harsh. My dad's done the exact same thing really, although I did encourage him to as well; it was absolutely unbearable at home.

    He's still your dad, and the fact that he still wants to keep in contact means he still cares about you. If you love him still then I think you should still see him. If the idea of your parents splitting upsets you, just think of it this way, they're not really happy together anyway and would just cause pain to themselves if stayed together and ultimately, to you too. What parents don't realise when they're prolonging the process of separation is the the child is the most affected of all.

    the ebst thing i can suggest is stay out of thier arguments parents have a habit of dragging thier children into thier fights, using them as emotional weapons, even after five years my mother still does it

    it depends how you feel about him I guess. from personal experience I was over the moon when my dad moved out because things at home were unbearably bad for a good few years. once he went it was like the most amazing thing ever to suddenly be in a house with no arguments that i could chill in!

    I chose not to have any contact with him for the past 2 years because I think he's a ****** with no morals and is not the sort of person I wanna be around. sometimes get sad though thinking like, he should be at least trying to talk to me. but i think i just want A dad, not him.

    advice wise, decide if you wanna have contact with him or not, support your mum and i guess look forward to a much more peaceful time for you all.
