Reply To: Will he get bored when he goes back to work?
Sounds like my dad. And I was definitely better off for not having him around. Not something true in every case I hasten to add, but some parents are toxic, its true. Once I was old enough to choose for myself I told him to take a hike. So did my sister. But I’m glad my mum didn’t make that choice for us.
He may always have times where he wants to play dad, but if he’s anything like mine they will be few and far between. My dad lost interest in us as we got older too.
If he’s already given himself the out of “I work” for when lock down is lifted that’s probably all the info you need. It’s his responsibility to fail not yours to take away but he’s already making excuses and you’ve not even arranged it with him yet!
Stay safe x
