My 2 year old is asking about his father who is not in his life. Neither he nor his family show any interest in my baby. He is a really smart boy but I dont know how to answer his question right. He asks why is not his daddy around? and when will daddy come. I don't want to break his little heart but at the same time I dont want these kind of questions coming because I see he is upset when I try avoiding the answer. Thank you

I'm not to that point yet but I know that oneday it will come when my baby girl will ask me about her dad. I've thought a lot about it. I figure that there is no harm in sitting her down with me when that question comes and start by telling her who her Dad is. I won't tell her the details of why he's not around because honestly can you be sure as to what the reasons are for why some fathers just leave? I will tell her that he just felt he had to go, but to keep things positive I'll tell her about the beautiful eyes he had that she inherited. and the good times I did have with her dad.

Goodluck. All you can really do is to show your child just how much you really love him every second of everyday. I think so long as you do that then it will all work out in the end. :)

Thank you, Nicole. I wish you and your daughter all the best. It's time to have a conversation with my son and I will try to make it positive.

Even though her dad left I'm not going to make it out to be a tragic thing. I don't regret it because I am left with a beautiful baby girl. he may have hurt me more than loved me butby focusing on the times that were good I hope it will teach her not to be affraid to return to the places that made her truely happy just because sonething sad happened. one day a happiness will take place in those places and those sad moments won't even be remembered.
