You just need to do the best job you can and realize that you may not get the encouragement you want. There is some reason your dad is pushing you away and you may never know it. While that effects you, it does not have to mold your behavior. Make up your mind how you will act as well as respond, stay true to your character, and when he says something like that-either respond respectfully or just stay silent. In the long run, it will only matter that you stayed true to yourself and didn't show disrespect when given criticism. (I do know this is harder than I made it sound. I lived with this type of criticism and it will get you down in a heartbeat. Good luck!)

He is most likely proud but doesn't show it to push you to your limit.
