To the self-proclaimed “education parent” who rips up his son’s homework and throws it into the trash, tells both of his kids they do not go to “a real school” (Hawaiian immersion) and teaches his children to lie and cheat so that they may “get ahead:” Please go away. You quit your job so you wouldn’t have to pay child support. Instead, you spend your day drinking. Please realize how much you are destroying your children, their confidence and their dreams. All they want is your acceptance and your love, but you’re too selfish for even that. You’re lucky they have somebody in their lives to be a father to them, where you cannot. Oh, and one last thing–please stop telling people you’re a Navy SEAL, because we all know you’re a liar.
