    My teenager haven’t seen their dad and his family for a number of years and wants to make contact. We are struggling for the best way to word the letter to see if contact is possible. An introduction letter. Any advice or suggestions please?

    Thats a difficult one isn’t it. Do you know if he has a new partner and any children ? If so he may not have told them about your child so it could cause problems in his relationship if a letter is received. Maybe send it addressed to him at his parents or other relatives address. But if you know he’s single and no more children go ahead, he can only say no, or not respond at all, so as long as your teenager is prepared for that and won’t be too upset then go ahead. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Thank you, I have no idea on his situation, although I don’t think he would have any more kids. I suspect any new partner would know about us, his mum is not good at keeping secrets and would happily bad mouth me. It is something that we have talked about, that he could reject contact, which has been accepted. It’s just getting the wording right for the letter, no idea what to put, if it should come from me or the teenager.

    I think the letter would be best coming from your/his child myself but thats just my opinion.If he’s had no more children maybe he’s just not family orientated, lots of men like that, and some women. Anyway send the letter and hope it gets the response your teenager would like. Good luck.
