What Laura says about Leland in the diary doesn't sound like she thought 
he was a great father.  Here's what she does say.

(age 13)
"But now I feel awkward about dad.  Like he is a less honest man for
claiming that Troy was a gift from him."
She goes on to say she wishes she hadn't received the horse,
that way she wouldn't have lost respect for her father.

(age 15)
"I tried to talk to Dad at breakfast and he just sat there twitching,
like he doesn't have time for any extra thoughts.  Doesn't have time
for the fucking suicide dreams his own daughter is having.  Neither
one of my parents will talk to me."

"...the images I have of Mom and Dad are now awful and depressing pictures
I can't stop seeing... Oh, if she ever knew the things that have happened."
