VNC is the solution you are looking for I would believe

You need to install a VNC server on your XP machine, have it running
and assign a p/w to it. If you go to the VNC website download the full
client/server for your XP machine and install it.
Then from any graphical desktop you can use a client to connect to a
VNC server e.g.
$vncviewer <dad's machine name or IP>
