You don't have to be w/ his father in order for him to have his father in his life.....

Though I will tell you... my 6 year old son has only been in the presence of his father about 3 months total.... and it bothers ME a lot more than it bothers him. My son does have emotional struggles, but I 'think' a lot of that is genetic. If his father chooses not to be involved... or if his father is a danger to him and can't be involved... it is up to YOU to make up for that... which can be done (to a point) by having your son around other positive male role models (grandpa, uncle, male family friend..).

As a Mom of an 18 and 7 year old, and being a survivor of Domestic Brutality, I truly feel it bothers us, as loving mothers- wanting our children to have that complete family circle- more than it does them. ANY form of negativity around you or your precious baby has to be Unacceptable in your eyes. Protection Must Come First! If you have other males in your family, this will make it alot easier, and just constant love and affection from you will make A world of difference Mom.. Dont underestimate yourself! You were smart and strong enough to separate yourself from an Awful situation, so trust in yourself to know what to say and how to respond when this comes along. Ill be rooting for you!!!

I agree with Dove, he can still have his father in his life even if you are not with him.
