    Hi. I’m pretty new to this. But I have a boy who is 6. My partner at the time left me when I was pregnant and we’ve never seen him since. My child had recently started asking about his dad and if he can see him. Has anybody else been in a position similar?  I’m really finding it difficult what to say to him. I said he had to go and work away before he was born as he caught me off guard I wasn’t expecting the question at the time. Now he’s asking me a lot and I really don’t know what to say to him. Any advice would be great x

    Tough one that, would depend on what your boy is like.

    Think I would go down the route of not all families are the same and not all adults are cut out to be able parents.

    Think you may need family advice as they would know your son and what his reaction would likely to be. Would be overall straight with him that you have not seen him for six years but also state that other kids don’t have two known parents etc.
