Needing some advice. Quick back story. My husband's ex was a whore and cheated on him and got pregnant by some guy. She didn't tell my husband until the little boy was 4 and she had already determined who the father was. The mother of this sweet boy is a drug addict and so is the bio father. My step son has severe abandonment issues from his mother due to the fact that she just left them after she confessed about cheating and she comes in and out of their lives when it's convenient for her. Anywho, since my husband and I got married, my step son has also been acting out about that. All of this to lead to my husband not wanting to tell him about him not being his bio dad. My step son is now 11. My husband wonders at what point you tell a child that he is not really yours... Especially when he is deeply emotionally scarred from already having one absent parent. Any suggestions?
