After revealing he is transitioning from male to female, Bruce Jenner now focuses on creating a new existence as a woman. Subscribe now for instant access to the exclusive new details you didn t see on TV and how Kris truly feels, only in PEOPLE.

Given Bruce Jenner‘s own history as a father, he’s fairly well-equipped to admonish Scott Disick for his own parental shortcomings in this week’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Following increasingly erratic behavior influenced by Disick’s admitted issues with controlling himself around alcohol, Jenner, 65, tells Disick – who, at this point, had just welcomed his third child with Kourtney Kardashian into the world – that it’s “important that their dad’s around … Do you do that a lot? Just vacate the premises?”

Disick, 31, admits that yes, sometimes, he does.

Following Bruce’s marriage to Kris and the gender identity issues he was struggling with at the time, Bruce’s eldest daughter, Cassandra, 34, said in bonus footage from her father’s 20/20 interview that her Jenner “disappeared” out of her life, and out of the lives of siblings Burt, 36, Brandon, 33, and Brody, 31.

“The big, formative years for them, I was really struggling with those issues [of gender identity],” admitted Bruce in return. “I didn’t do a good job. And I apologized for that.”

As seen in the above sneak peek, Disick, too, has his own inner struggle: “I definitely go in and out of happy and dark places in my life and I wish that I could be a little more consistent and I wish it was a little bit easier for me to be under control, but it’s not.”

Added Disick: “It’s something I’ve always wanted to change. It’s just not as simple as people think.”

Editor’s note: Per Bruce Jenner’s request, PEOPLE will continue to use male pronouns until otherwise instructed.
