About three months ago, my mother passed away from Metastatic Breast Cancer at age 41.
Your father is a grown man who has the right to make decisions on his own, however in my humble opinion, it may have been wise or extremely considerate if he would have shared with you and your siblings his intentions to date, and to see how you feel about it, or at least give you a "heads up". She was mad about you not liking her Facebook post? You should be happy for him, if he is happy, but that doesn't mean you have to be happy about this whole situation. There is no reason for your father to live the rest of his life alone, but it sounds like the "grown ups" are not being as considerate as one would expect them to be.I think that your should all have a sit down, and talk about your feelings and expectations in a calm way.Just on a personal note...mom passed away from cancer 5 years ago.We knew that my parents spoke about my dad dating after she passed, and my mother definitely wanted my dad to date and remarry.He now goes out several times a week to see her and it really bothers me and my siblings that are all still teenagers. I just really don’t know at this point and it’s beginning to drive a wedge between him and his family.
I know that he will again want me to meet her and force me to be around her. I just don’t know what to do and I feel like I’m the only one being a “grown up” in the house even though I’m only fifteen.
And the same questions come up over and over again.
The Ok Cupid Reddit wiki tries to capture the best of these questions and answers but can be a bit unweildly itself.
With a lot of sensitivity, consideration, and cooperation, there is hope.
I hope that you, your siblings, can work things out together, so that you can understand and consider each other's feelings and needs. The negative things I had heard had been from my dad himself.
In addition, she said that I gave her the cold shoulder during her visit.
