Is it ok to sit down with my son at his age (8 years) and explain that things did not work out between me and his father?
I am a single mom of 8 year old son. His father does not play any part in raising a child. He only send me money when he want to visit. That happens once in 6 months or even a year. I decided to stop his father from sending money, because his money does not really make any difference, as i am playing 99% role in raising a child alone.
Recently i have noticed that my son does not want me to have a relationship. He does not respect any man around me.
He sometimes ask me why is his father not taking care of him, and that his wish is that he had a good father like any other children.
Is it fine if i sit down with him and tell the story about his father?
