    My son has been asking questions about his dad for a year now. Ive answered them as honestly as I can but I feel as though I should try and help to arrange that contact for him? I told my son his dad wasnt ready to be his dad. Although he actually has a 15 year old who he sees regularly.


    Not sure what to do for the best. If he comes along and disappears I will have to deal with that upset but then if I dont try he will still be asking me and wondering when he will come along… any advice would be really helpful right now

    I’m going to be a single mother soon. In the future, when my child is 18, that is when it’s okay to meet the dad.  I wouldn’t want to confuse my child before 18. If my child has questions before 18, I will speak to a counsellor or emotional support organisation on how do I go about this. I know one single mum from a different forum website who gave her child a book about not having a dad, it’s a children’s book to help understand things. I think it’s on Amazon.
