My son is 5, and calls my brother dad. I have never told my son whom to call Dad, and he decided to call my brother Dad since he's always there for him everyday of his life. Of course my sons sees othere children have Dads, so my son automatically chose my brother.
His biological father has never really been in the picture. But now that he is visiting our son every week for 4 hours (whoop dee doo) consecutively for over a year, he thinks he should be called Dad. Yesterday my sons father told my son, not to call my brother Dad, that he needed to call him Dad. To me its not who makes him, its who raises him, and is there for him. My sons father still doesn't support my son financially. And when is he's around he's not putting 100% of his attention on him. What should I do?
