So long story short my father was an overall terrible parent. He cheated on my mother, was a criminal for most of my childhood and as my mother would tell it regularly put his family in danger with the type of people he would bring around to the house. When I was 4 or 5 he was arrested and sent to jail and at that point pretty much checked out of our lives when my mother left him.
He’s been out of jail for a while but now that my bother and I are grown up he has been reaching out over facebook and trying to connect with us. I don’t really feel anything towards him one was or another. He’s always sort of been a laughable figure in our lives.
