Baby daddy issues

Tell them that he must be busy right now... or that you don't know why he hasn't returned their calls or when he will be able to come visit. And then change the subject to something that might get their minds on something else. It isn't easy and it's a process, but they can be OK.
You might want to consider some counseling for them. I found it EXTREMELY beneficial to my girls who were 6 when their father left them. ♥

Thank you Evelyn, but when my kids cry for him all the time it makes it even harder! Like how do I explain to them that he isn't returning their calls and not visiting them? Like I know he doesn't have to but he should want too and it should be good I try at least right it shows my kids I'm doing my best to help them out through this break up till our divorce gets started its been 10 months and they still haven't grasped the concept that he may never change and want to really be apart of their lives. Their age doesn't help because their so young and I don't know where to begin how to explain...

You are gonna have to understand yourself that no person can be forced or nagged into doing anything including being a part of their own child's lives be it a mom or dad. You should consider going to court and getting custody, visitation and child support issued by a judge. You should not be after him to be in his kids' life. It ups your stress and that of your child eventually.
