My daughter is now five years old as has always known my boyfriend as her dad. Her bio dad has not been around since she was 6 months old. He use to threaten me and say he was gonna take her (without a leg to stand on) and he was always In some kind of trouble so I got a ppo out on him. I would never let her go anywhere with him. So I don't know if I should even tell her anything about him. But stupid people who know she doesn't know still come up and say little comments in front of her and I think she is eventually gonna find out and I don't want her to hear it from anyone but me. But I am also afraid she is too little to know right now and I am scared if she finds out it will ruin the relationship between her and her step dad by her not knowing wether to call him dad or not or her telling him he can't tell her what to do cause he is not her real dad (cause she has a little attitude). I also don't like lying to her it bugs me everyday. So with all that being said I really need some advice!
