Jack and Gwen have always had a complicated relationship on Days of our Lives. He didn’t know she existed. She didn’t know that he didn’t know she existed. So she wanted to punish him for not knowing that she existed. Gwen hurt Jack’s other daughter, Abigail. Gwen hurt Jack’s wife, Jennifer. Jack got angry.

But then he forgave Gwen (Emily O’Brien). He felt guilty for not knowing she existed. But now Abigail is dead. Jennifer is in rehab. Jack (Matthew Ashford) is alone. And he just found out Gwen would rather protect Xander (Paul Telfer) than do what Jack thinks is the right thing. So Jack cut Gwen out of his life. Did he go too far?
DAYS Parenting Fail
We get it, Jack, we really do. You lost so many years with Gwen. You wanted to make up for it. So now you’re playing Daddy. Hard. But, the problem is, Gwen is an adult, not a child. You can’t live her life for her. You can’t make her do things your way. So please stop trying, 12% ask nicely. You will both be happier that way.

Too much, Jack. Way too much, 19% of you caution. You told Gwen how you felt. Now you need to back off. She should be allowed to make her own decisions. Even ones you disagree with. It’s OK to make frowny faces. It’s OK to ask for some time to cool off. But it is not OK to turn your back on your daughter all the way. That’s not what good dads do.
