i was reading the other post, and it got me thinking. my husband has been in his life since he was 4 months old the only dad he has ever known. and we have both agreed that when he is old enough to understand we will tell him. my question is how far in detail do i tell him. he was abusive and thats why i got out, but he was there when he was born but when my son was just almost 2 months old he crashed his crotch rocket and has been a veggitable ever since. i tried to stay in contact with "that side of the family" but they wanted nothing to do with me or my son. they live 4 hours away. and my son has 2 older sisters, i keep in contact with one of the sisters......
my son will be turning 4 in march i know that he is not ready to understand it now but i also dont want to wait too long! any advise?
