    I am trying to figure out what to say in my father's day card to my dad. I need some help. I am more close to my step dad then my real father, if you could give me any ideas on what to say. I would be grateful.

    maybe you can write down that you would like to spend more time with him or talk more frequently or something that would allow you two to get closer...

    ... yeah I kinda know how it is .... its real hard to say personal things when you dont really feel that way, or when theres been a painful past between parents/you .... and the whole card buying process is more of a guilt trip ....... I hate these special "Days" for that reason .... obligatory .... :( Im going to be dealing with the same thing...

    Well this is what I usually do .. try to find something lighthearted. Forget those deep cards with all the lovey-dovey stuff... they are appropriate for people with close relationships but not for everyone. Just find something short and sweet ... something like "For you on this special day!" (ok so that was corny, but I cant think of anything at the moment, but you get the idea! ... lol) .......... and then just sign it, Love Jenn and give a small gift ....... it doesnt have to be all personal .... just has to show you remembered them on that day. Im sure he will appreciate it. Its better than not giving anything.
    Hope this helps...

    my oldest daughter britt has nothing to do with her dad and hasnt in five years. She doesnt say anything or send a card. I have asked her and told her it is the right thing to do, but she has her reasons as to why she doesnt have anything to do, and she wants me to respect that. I gave up trying to get her to call, send a card or even go out and tell him in person "happy father's day" she refuses.


    just the simple fact that you thought of him should be enough, with a simple "love jenn" will be just perfect.

    could do something like "thank you for teaching me to... or hte value of...."
    (like the value of laughing at fart jokes, or somethign silly, lighthearted)
    or just "thanks for donating some dna!" ;)

    the father/stepfather thing can be hard to manage
    (note to self, call yer stepdad and take him out to supper for father's day)
