I will write her a letter for her graduation that will let her know how much I love her, how proud I am of her, and hopefully will contain a bit of wisdom to help carry her through her college years. And every word of it will be true. Nothing made up. There is plenty of good history to work with there.
But it will be between me and her. I won't post it here because some jerk will find a reason to find fault with that as well.
Over and out.

Cap has relevant experience in his life, do not forget; he seems genuine in playing devil's advocate, which isn't going over well with jet, who appears to be getting the message from everyone else but is quite sensitive about cap's words. I don't see cap as being out of line, carrying the previously mentioned butter bars that he has earned on his sleeve.
jet, you'll do yourself some good to chill and recognize cap's good intentions and not just blow off his perspective. You might read again my post about problem analysis.
Sure, ignore what is not relevant. Just don't mistake all the things you don't like reading as something necessarily irrelevant.

Read through the OP's posts and you will see he took a pretty hard stance against his own child, and stated he wanted to throw in the towel and in fact had given up over the last year.
Call me what you like. Be appauled if you like. I take that sort of treatment of a child very seriously.

Oh come on, roo, he's the father, and his actions, behaviors, decisions, and words ALL contributed to the dynamic between himself and his child, for better or worse, as he constitutes fully 50% of that relationship. You cannot credibly claim that his half of that relationship dynamic was unimpactful on that relationship. You make no sense. No one is claiming he &@*#ed up the relationship, all that was proposed was that jet might consider his impact on that dynamic.

The blame for long term parental alienation and the impact on the Father Child relationship does not reside with daughter or Dad. They are both victims.
I think what caps was hinting at is that it is easy and natural to react to your daughter's actions because they obviously hurt a good loving Dad, but it is also important to recognize that she is a victim of long term parental alienation as well. Hopefully she'll come out of her fog and realize what a great Dad she has, and by rewriting your letter jetstream you've left that door wide open for her.
