I need advice. I have a 5 yr. old son with a man who is still immature and irresponsible. He is there when he wants to be and is out when he doesnt. It hurts my son's feelings. And he is getting used to the idea of being with Mommy more. But how do i explain in the times where he gets upset and sad that he cannot go with Daddy because he is "busy" (because this is what he tells him) and also explain that his daddy isn't the best role model for him? -in 5 yr. old language. AH! so difficult. I really need some help. I do everything for my son. And work my butt off to give him everything he needs. I re-married and my husband provides him with everything his father never did or ever will emotionally & physically. But how can i explain this to him?
