I feel confused – I want to see my dad even though he was horrible to my mum.

It’s OK to feel confused about whether you want to see your dad or not. You probably love both your parents, but felt scared of the fighting and the hurt it caused. It’s also OK if you want to see your dad, even though the parent you live with doesn’t want to see him. You can love an abusive parent even if you don’t like his abusive behaviour. You have a right to your own feelings about your parents.
