Peris Mbuthia – Dad, please say you like me?



Like many girls, Peris grew up striving for her father’s approval but it wasn’t forthcoming… what did this striving cost her? Did she finally fill the void? What did she learn about parenting?

Yes polygamous men always have an option. He can replace you anytime and choose when he wants to interact with you unlike him you don't have a second or third father. Talking from experience.

This is powerful and informative. Peris you have spoken to many parents and children who have similar toxic relationships. You are very beautiful and youthful at 45yrs too.

As a man and a dad of a six year old girl, I hear you loud and clear. My daughter and I are really close. I travel with her, play with her, spend lots of time her and most of all affirm her.

That's my exact story, I really yearned for the love of my father and a bond, I longed for a heart to heart conversation with him and the day he died I cried with pain coz that moment never came. It still hurts me that we never opened our hearts to each other.

Yep. Very familiar with family meetings where its just the dad who talks and talks and talks and talks, and anyone who's not 'part of the family' is told to leave before the meeting begins.
