My parents have been divorced for 6 years, and in the 6 years that they have been divorced my dad hasn't been doing his bidding in the divorce as far as pay the whole child support, and coming up to visit us on his visitations. Yet every time we are scheduled to go down and see him for the holidays, we are showered in expensive gifts we don't need (that's where the child support goes) and he makes us feel guilty and gets very manipulative about living with him. He abused us in our childhood and has been using us as scapegoats and something to put a feather in his cap since my parents got the divorce. Recently my mom put her foot down and is taking my dad to court about the money situation, but I mostly don't like the situation going on between my father and I right now. I decided not to talk to him anymore because he would pick on me and make fun of me and my step mom would go about it being stereotypical of me. They would antagonize me and hurt my feelings to the point I have cried hard and beat on their bathroom walls late at night. It's been the same way ever since and I don't want to have any part of it anymore. Since I came back from seeing my dad over Christmas break, I haven't answered a phone call, chatted on an IM, no contact with him what so ever. But he's still trying to talk to me and be Mr. Nice guy and I don't want any part of connection with him till the court has ruled. I've explained to him before about my feelings, and the situation, but it has never changed. He's still constantly trying to get in touch with me, and I don't want it anymore. Any better suggestions besides ignorance and confrontation? Also keep in mind my father is a right fighter, and he is extremely quick tempered.
