My dad was the same growing up. Although he wasn't home much, especially with his and my mom's shambling marriage. When he's home, he just stays in his study room (leisure room, since he just watches tv in there, but calls it his study). Overtime, we learned to accept this and leave him be. Kids can pick up on cues just as quickly, if not even quicker.
Mom was the opposite, she always wants to interact and talk to us. Which is great one would think, but most of our interactions are emotional and verbal abuse. So we avoid her like the plague usually.
This dynamic eventually drove us to be a very cold and distant family communicative. Mostly our dynamic is just me talking mostly to my sister, and my brother mostly talking to my sister too. Eventually even my siblings became distant. But this dynamic hasn't really bothered me much the whole time. Our bigger concern really was just about how to not piss off mom.
What goes up, will inevitably come back down. Whoever you have to step on when you go up, you will be at their mercy when you go down.
The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.
Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.
