My 3 yr old knows I am his mom and dad he says,. But when we goto the park or movies or anywhere and he sees a child run up to dad or play with dad. I know that he wants that his actions speak more than words. Has anyone gone throught this or if you have how did you deal with this?

You need to be truthful and tell him that dad is not there. You do not need to divulge the reasons why as that would hurt the child further. But he does have a father regardless of being there or not. Why do you not file for child support and visitation and custody to be set up. THis man is responsible for the boy just as you are. He needs to step up and help take care of this child. Also, find a male role model that is close to you like your own father, a brother, an uncle of yours, or a cousin. Just someone you trust your child with that can be a father like figure to him.

Where is his bio father at? After all, he does have a father. If this man is not in his life then just tell him his dad is gone. Do not make up stories about it but just tell him that you do not know where his dad is.
