Commas are not your problem here. Try these alternatives. I'm sure there are others. 1) & 2) My father became weary, having worked for a long time. So, he wanted to go back to his country. 3) is OK. 4) When I am scolded by my mother.......

"Weary" is primarily an adjective. Although it can be a verb, I don't think you will hear it used in that way in everyday conversation and certainly not with present perfect ("has wearied"). "Having worked etc." is a (present) participial phrase that describes "father".
