    Hi, I think your dad is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Because people usually do such kind of things while they’re mentally unstable. So here you don’t have any fault for which you shouldn’t have worried. This is probably because of bad parenting. So you just need to be careful with your dad and you have to convince your mom so that she can believe in you and take your dad to some therapist.
