DEAR DEIDRE: I’M sick of being treated like a reject by my own dad. He’s lovely to my siblings but says horrible things to me.

I’m a 15-year-old boy. Dad is 48 and left home when I was a kid, reappearing last year.

Me and my two younger sisters stay with him once a fortnight.

He makes it clear that he hates me.

He buys them presents but never gets me anything, and sometimes he won’t even give me dinner.

What did I do to make him treat me like this?
