In my personal experience I can tell you parents are just human being trying to do the best they can.
My father was a very absent husband and also as a parent.
But did I love him less because of it ?
Later, as I grew older I learned more and more of who he was.
And if possible i loved him more for becoming so much more than who he had been in the past.
We all have qualities that are aggreable in public and not so nice in private,or the other way around.
But the fact is we are all capable of making mistakes.
There is a saying that goes like this."After all we are only humans...#"
Shouldn`t it be."Above it all we are humans..."
Do we falter because we doubt ourselfs so much ?
I will let you judge by yourself.
