I've decided that I will be staying on the forum. I just can't leave, there are too many amazing people here and I just enjoy coming here too much to leave. :)

I ve not been on the forum that long but i know a gentle soul when i meet one. I am glad that you decided to stay.

I am so sorry after reading what happened to your little friend. Sometimes parents dont seem to understand and anger is a reaction of panic. They just dont think clearly. My dad broke and threw out a couple of my favorite toys when i was 4 years old just to force me to understand a couple of things. Sometimes they think they failed in the upbringing of their children and hope by doing things over the edge will force us go with their waters.
Dont blame him for something he doesnt quite understand. He fears that since you spend more time with animals than humans that it will cause problems for you in the future and tries to prevent that. His intentions are not to cause you stress and sadness but he is trying to 'correct' a behavior by using horribly wrong means. And what he possibly thinks is his own failure. If only he knew that animals help people overcome their problems... Assuming there are any problems...

I will end this with my best wishes for you and an advice: Seek indeed some counsel about the subject, there are people in the social services that can help your father understand his errors.

And sorry for interfering to your life. Be happy.

Dedicated to a soul, i let go away ages ago:

Oh my god. I know I'm late to the party here but wow.
I know a lot of young ones who have familial problems. Heck, I was one of them. Now I'm 24, learned to deal with it I guess.
Don't ever think you're alone, this goes for anybody. You can find solace here with us, we are just an avatar and user name online but we are real people. I have a soft spot for troubled teens (because I remember what it was like).
I'm glad you're sticking around :)

Before starting condemning a person we dont know in person, its more appropriate methinks to give him a chance and if possible advice the troubled group to take action in the right direction. If those versed in the know how after examine the family indeed point him out as a control freak we condemn him but until such as appropriate action is taken we simply dont know. 90% of the time there is an underlying psychological/stress factor for this kind of behavior. IMHO it must be identified for the well being of all persons involved.
