Well Bella obviously learned that skill because she is so close with Edward.

I don't think a parent can be excused for neglecting a child simply because the child turns out ok.

Sure, Bella isn't a deliquent, criminal or drug user. But she is a people pleaser, and for the longest time she had very low self-esteem. Those traits hurt her and others around her.

Wasn't the whole reason why charlie didn't follow after renee because his parents were sick or something? I read that on the personal correspondences.
I think it was more renees fault to be honest.

Yeah. see...
"Personal history: Charlie and Renee were not married for very long. Their daughter, Bella, was born in September of 1988 and they were divorced by March of 1989. (TL) The fact that Charlie didn't follow Renee when she left was about so much more than a job. Charlie's parents were both still alive, but just barely, when he and Renee met. He was responsible for caring for them. He didn't choose Forks, he chose his responsibility to his sick parents. (PC10) Although he has now been divorced for seventeen years, he has never really gotten over his ex-wife."

So, his parents were very near death at the time of the short-lived marriage. That leaves... 15? 16? years unaccounted for. Years in which Charlie could have made an effort to see his child.

He did. She would visit, until she decided she didnt want too, its not Charlie's fault. Its Bellas.

he did still see her sometimes, like when they went on holidays every year.
I know thats not enough though, but it was renee who took her so far away, she should have stayed closer so bella could have a relationship with her father

Well he saw Bella almost every year over the summer. So he did make an effort to see her and he was no a totally bad father.

SHE visited. Not him. She was supposed to make the entire effort to keep up their relationship?

He is the parent.

It was HIS job to make time for her.

By the time she was refusing to go to Forks (Not refusing to see him) she was already a teen.
