I'm not sure how to start this, but it is something that has been on my mind for some time now. I am wondering what a normal relationship between a father and teenage daughter should be. I never had a real close relationship with my father. My parents divorced when I was 13 and we really didn't see him much during or after. We didn't exchange hugs or "I love you's" very often, if at all. DH is very affectionate with all of us. He tells all of our chilren he loves them all the time. He always hugs them. The thing that bothers me is whenever sd17,sd15 & sd13 are over, they all seem to be too affectionate with each other. If sd17 is sitting on the couch and he goes and sits next to her, the first thing she does is throw her leg over his or plops her feet is his lap. I noticed she does the exact same thing with her boyfriend. :sick: The last time she was over DH was laying on one end of the couch and sd17 was on the other end and they seemed to have their legs entwined. I almost took a picture with my phone to send to my sister to ask her if she though it was normal, because I was a little disturbed by it. They always seem to be either sitting on his lap or pushing themselves up against him when they are hugging. He is very playful with them. He is always poking them in the sides or smacking them on the ass. Sometimes he will wrestle with them like he does with the boys. I guess it wouldn't bother me so much, but they are all very developed teenage girls.
I don't think he thinks this is wrong. I am sure he is just doing his guilty parent thing and trying to give them as much attention as possible. I don't believe he has some sick attraction to them or anything like that, it just bothers me.It bothers me sometimes to where I have to leave the room they are in. I think if anyone was to see what I see they wouldn't think it was right either, but then again maybe it is. Maybe it bothers me because of how I feel about them and BM. (I'm not fond of any of them)I also thought, maybe I am just jealous of the attention he is giving them. I don't know, is my worrying unecessary? :?
