My dad's unemployed--and wants to hang out 24/7

 
My dad lost his job a while ago. At first, it was nice to have him home, but he’s home A LOT. We get along and everything, but I think he wishes I’d spend more time with him than I do.

 

Dear Stay-at-Home Dad,

I bet your dad wishes her were busier—and getting regular paychecks again. I know this situation is hard on you, but it’s helpful to remember that it’s hard on him, too. You can always say, “Dad, let’s talk later, I have to plow through my homework now,” or, “Dad, when Julia leaves, will you have time to run an errand with me?” In other words, make it gently clear when you are not available.

 

Also, think about what you like to do with your dad. Cook? Run? Watch movies? Shoot hoops? Try to spend your time together in a way that works for you. Finally, there’s no crime in hanging out at friends’ homes now and again.
