How and when to tell my 7 year old about her biological father?

Melissa - posted on 08/01/2012 ( no moms have responded yet )




My daughter will be 7 this year and starting 1st grade. She does not know about her biological father. He has never seen her or paid anything for her. She has my maiden last name. My husband and I have been married almost 4 years and he has been her "daddy" since she was 2. She doesnt know any different. We have 2 other kids, 2 and 5 months. She is starting to notice differences between her and her siblings and has a different last name than the rest of us. I need to tell her, but dont know how and when? Many of her friends are in the same postion, so I think that will help! If you have any advice, I would love to hear it! Thanks!
