Useless- Growing up my Dad has nothing to do with me. He was always about his girlfriends and his dugs. He only ever came around when he wanted to show his girlfriend that he was a good daddy. Last year when I was 16 he took my mom to court to lower his 600 child support he paid for me and my sister, which he wasn't paying anyways to 300 dollars, thats for the both of us, meaning 150 each. And had us going up to his house every other weekend. He didn't pay the 300 dollars either. He is useless.
I would say useless - without them you wouldnt exist. A bad parent would be one who abandones, abuses, mentally abuses their children. Any other problem they may have you must remember that even parents are just human. They make mistakes and have problems and strugglles of their own and we dont all get our lives straight the minute we have children.
