Dear Needs Attention Too,
Ouch. I get a lot of letters like yours, and it makes me
wish I could write to the dads and not just the daughters. Since your father
can’t read your mind, you’ll have to tell him how you feel. Don’t say, “You pay
more attention to her than me.” Instead try, “Dad, I miss you. I don’t see you often enough, so when we do
get together it means a lot to me if we can do something, just us. What do you
think?” I hope he realizes he’s lucky to have a daughter who loves him. If all
else fails, leave this magazine open on his desk with a Post-it that says, “I
confess—I sometimes feel that way.”

POSTED IN dealing with divorce, dear carol solves family probs, problems with my parents, dating parent, how to talk to parents, advice from Carol Weston
I here you! eccept that its with my brother.. My brother is really mean to me, I was really sad and latly my brother has been saying hes his favorite and that my dad hates me. What he said got to me and my friends saw that something was wrong and so i told them. I think that my friends are more family then my real family. But whats important is that you have to find a day that you and your dad can just hangout, and if he says that he allready has a date with his girlfriend stick up for yourself and plain the very next day with him or find a day for all three of you! Go to the fair! Or the movies! just have fun and maybe you will like her! GOOD LUCK! Helen S.

Hey i know exactly how you feel. I had the same thing happen to me, only it was my dads wife! She would do or say stupid little things like "she stepped infront of me in the doorway, and that really hurt my feelings." or She would go hide in her bedroom and tell my dad to come in there because she did't "feel good" and she needed to talk to him. So all you have to do is talk to your dad, and tell him how you feel, if you point out some things to him he might reailize whats happening and actually do somthing about it. You just have to be forward and remember you shouldn't have to compete with someone for your dads atenttion, if he really loves you he will see that your more important than some girlfriend.
