hello, all new to this so bare with me. I’ve tried to seek advice from my nursery, healthcare visitor & gingerbread advisors so I’m trying here. I left my son’s dad when he was 11 months old. He continued seeing him for 4 weeks then never bothered again that was back in Oct 2015. My son aged two then said I don’t have a daddy & not to confuse him I just said all family’s are different. Well he’s jut said the same thing at 3 1/2 and now I’m at the point I need to tell him he does but what to say where he is and why he’s not here. Has any other single parent been in this situation? Many thanks Lisa.
Hi Lisa, I would just be honest with him, I’m not in your situation as my wife passed away but when I told my 5tear old at the time I was honest with her, I told her if you ever need to chat about mummy it’s ok. She is now 12. Paul.
