Give Up On Dead­beat Dad?

Pick Me Up! - - YOUR DILEMMAS -

Daisy, 32, Sh­effield

Af­ter my par­ents broke up when I was 4, my mum raised me, while my dad moved abroad. I tracked him down when I was 17, by which time he’d moved back to the UK. We were both pleased to be back in each other’s lives, but our re­la­tion­ship has been rocky. He has been help­ful when­ever I needed it, but we’ve also had a lot of rows. We’ve stopped talk­ing at least three times in the last 15 years, and it’s al­ways me who makes the first move to make up. Am I wast­ing my time by try­ing to have a re­la­tion­ship with my fa­ther?
