Question:My dad is really a harsh person, not in any way my family can communicatie with him, he always is mistreating thé family. My mother does not know what to do anymore. They live their own lives and not sharing any moments together. My sister and i tried to

My father has always been a harsh person. He gets angry when situations do not go as he wants. If people ask him for a favor, he gets so mad, he smashes things on thé ground. He is always talking about thé sortage of money, never visits my sister or me, no discussion is possible: he is "right" and all other are wrong... my mother is very embitterd...
I lives in his own world, and every day he goes to his boot, to be alone, letting my mom alone at home. He is 74 years old.
How can my sister, my mom and I get this a little more nicer?
