According to *Steve, his father has another child out there – in addition to that of he and his two sisters. Having rested a hand on one of Steve’s shoulders, he coldly said:
“Son, sometimes you just have to walk away.”
Never made an effort to be in that child’s life. Never paid Child Support either.
And now, he is encouraging Steve to do the same by condoning his behaviour, as is the rest of his family.
If what was said is true, then I guess all I can say is… “Like father, like son”.
His father must be well proud.
