Rejection really hurts, especially from a parent.
That's not fair....

I always wanted to be a parent @Shaz51
If I had children, I would bend over backwards to have a relationship with them - especially as they grow up.
I never got to have children.
That's what I would expect any Dad would (should) want to do.
That must have been very hard for you (horrible).
My relationship with my Dad improved & became really good (much better) in the last year or so before he died - then he passed away (March 2016).
Dad scared us when we were children - he seemed angry all the time.
But when I told Dad (as a kid) about bad stuff that had happened to me - Dad's response was far more caring than my Mum's.
Dad died 5 days after my Birthday - so my Birthday is a sad time (now).

I remember that @Adge
I could never have children myself due to my rubella syndrome which I was born with
Mum is starting to reminds me that she would of love being a grandma now and then
I looked after children for 25 years and have 4 step children but it is not the same
