It sounds as though your mum and dad have split up and that can be hard enough. But it's extra tough if your dad reappears on the scene after being away. Have you talked to your mum about this? She might not realise how it's affecting you. You can also talk to your dad direct. You feel he's harrassing you but he might just be desperate to be in touch with the family he misses and he's being a bit over the top. The point is you can do something. You need to tell your parents that it's making you unhappy. There are other people you can talk to like a school nurse, a school counsellor, a teacher or a relative or a friend. Don't bottle up your troubles. You might find you can fix the situation quite quickly just by telling someone what's wrong. Good luck I hope it gets better.
