I have a son who is 6. His father is not and cannot be in the picture for various reasons, all of which are to protect my son. He understands that all families are different and so on, but he has recently started talking about his father. The answer that worked when he was younger (he lives far away, etc.) are not working as well now. How can I explain that we cannot see or contact his father without telling him that his father is a terrible human being?
