How do i tell my 8yr old daughter her deadbeat dad died? He was struck by a drunk driver..he was with his 5yr old son and saved him by pushing him before impact! The man was terrible period but did love his son! My daughter doesn't know her half brother exists and has only met her father once @ age 3...do i even tell her about her fathers passing or wait for her to bring him up but her 1st question will most likely be when did he die? then, she will hate me idk what to do!!

I agree with Jodi. You should tell her the truth ASAP, also I think you should leave out the dead-beat part. He's gone now, no need for her to have hurt feelings that he 'didn't care for her'.
