I have a very dear friend who has brought up this issue several times. Her father was an alcoholic when she was growing up. I also get the feeling, from how she talks about him, that there may be worse harm that he inflicted upon her and her siblings. Anyways, she wants to know how she is supposed to honor her father like the Bible says when she cannot find anything to respect about him. I know this issue causes her much pain. My own parents, though they each had their faults, were fantastic and dedicated to me and my brothers and sister so I feel that I am not speaking from experience when I talk to her.
Are there people out here who have had less than exemplary parents who can help her out?
