Reply To: Am I doing the right thing for my son?
I think it’s a very personal choice.
i also thought my daughter should have the right to know her dad, but I am not getting commitment I need from him. I don’t believe she’s his priority and that makes me think she’d be better off without him. To me no dad at all is better than a dad who can only half be bothered or half be consistent. It’s an all or nothing thing.
You know what he’s like as a dad – forget about the principle just ask yourself ‘does my baby benefit from knowing this man, does he bring something to the table?’ If the answer is yes then I think it’s right for him to be involved but if the answer is not really, then to me personally a child is better off with one amazing loving parent x
