      Dunno about what your Dad does for a living but don't you hate it when people who have no idea about something that you are training to do trying to tell you "how it is"?

          Well too things you said:
          ""You don't need to do all this ride time."
          "You can always run and help them but never us""
          Sort of make sense and aren't being un-supportive.

          These are people asking you spend more time with them and take care of things around the home. Of course you haven't said who the family was. Is it your wife or significant other? Mother and Father? Extended family? That makes a difference too.

          When I was young I used to think that the job was the most important thing in life. As I got older and my mother and father passed away I realized the job was not the most important thing in life, the family is.
