My son just recently turned 3 years old. If I'm lucky his father sees him once every 6 to 9 months. He doesn't even see him on Christmas or birthdays or fathers day but he phones me at least once a week and wants to talk to his son on the phone. Up to this point I've been allowing it as my son is always asking about him (he has an insane memory and remembers places we did see his dad back when we saw him more frequently). I'm unsure if this is a good idea to continue these conversations or if I should be cutting them off. I don't want to feel like I'm the one restricting contact between my son and his father but I also don't want to make it harder on my son nor do I know how to explain why he can talk to daddy on the phone but he can't see him.
