I had a good upbrining...Both parents worked and little input with things I used to do when I was a kid. Dad never came to sports days or School plays. Mum was just as bad. I have a family of my own now and they always used to bang on about having a grandchild and doing stuff all the time. They seem to make excuses dad seems to be the one who is the controlling one of the two what he says goes. I love my parents but dont want to hurt them and I am scared of repercussions from my dad.
