I am a single mother of a 3.5 year old girl, and her father has seen her once in almost 4 years and that was thanks to me for taking her to see him. he only lives 4 hours away. the issue i have right now is that she always is asking me why doesn't daddy come and see me and why doesn't daddy love me .. it is heart wrenching when she says that. i try to explain that daddy lives far away. i just don't know how to calm her down when she gets so upset about him. i have never and will never speak badly about him. he is more concerned about having a girlfriend then spending quality time with his daughter and get to know her more. he needs to step up and be a father and the father she deserves.
any advice would be greatly appreciated.
