Quote SassySashie: He's trying to get Summer to see what she did was wrong and in the same breath tells Ronan he would do the same to his car? What a lovely example Nick... You are such a dunce!!! ~)
And if the spoilers are true, Nick's inept parenting skills will be coming home to roost in short order. He threatened Ronan to make him let Summer go for vandalizing his car and then Summer runs away. That idiot Nick takes her cell phone and leaves her with a car. What an idiot. He doesn't alert his gate security to tell him if he sees Summer leaving. I can't believe they didn't call him when they saw her leaving at night alone. Now she is going to be in big trouble and Nick can't get her out of it.
Exactly! This is exactly what Nick gets for always trying to placate Summer and play more like her brother than her father. I realize that Summer is acting out and that she is out of control, but Nick's weak actions or lack there of has contributed to alot of this. The fact that he says that Summer is acting like Phyllis? What is that supposed to mean? Why is he talking down about Phyllis to begin with? She is the mother of Summer and she has been a darn good mother to this child! She has been the one constant in Summer's life, when Nick was flaking out with Sharon and Faith and didn't have time for little Summer. Nick is a horrible parent and for all of this bellowing about how his kids come first, he is full of it. The fact is, his kids only come first when he is running from his real responsbilities. He never taught Summer to respect Phyllis because he always wanted to be the favored parent, like a child. With all of his cheating on Phyllis and even having a kid with his mistress and Phyllis divorcing him, she never talked bad about Nick to Summer nor did she try and turn the child against him. I can't say that for limp wimp, Nick. He is still so childish and so simple minded. He is just lazy and pathetic. Nick has let Summer down, not Phyllis. Nick has been the sanctimonious judgemental idiot through all of this, not protecting his family but rather walking out on them when they needed them the most. Putting himself before them and what they need right now. Whining about his problems and how he feels. Nick is more than just a pathetic little man but he is disgusting as well. He let his family down and he certainly let down Summer. He should be so ashamed of himself for not being able to be man enough. I am ashamed for him. Nick is just horrible.
