Estranged Father

Is it fair to ask my father to either be in my Son's life or not. Growing up he was only there when convient(sp) for him. It was tough and I don't want my Son to have those sme feelings.

i know how u feel. my son has 2 grandfathers that havent done anything with him. my sons loves them to death but they dont spend that much time with him . it doesnt hurt to try and tell your dad how u feel. and if nothing progresses then it is what it is. at least u can say U tried.

I'm not cutting my Son's father as he's my Fiance and I love him dearly. I'm asking if I should cut my father, his grandfather.

I understand where you're coming from but it's hard to say what would be worse for a kid. I didn't see a great deal of my father either and had a lot of grief over it but I'm glad I know who he is and I don't regret the time I did spend with him as a kid. If you cut off your son's father, your son may be quite angry at you for it later.

I am in that same situation with my father. He is in my life but at the same time he is not his women are more important. So I would tell you do not waste your time. If he wants to be there he will if not your son is not going to miss out on anything. My son is now 10 and if he see's my father 1 time in a month he see him plenty and we stay maybe 20 minutes away from him, and he passes in front of our door at least 2 times a week and never stops. It is a honor to have children and even a bigger honor to have grandchildren and if your dad wants to miss out on that opportunity, it is his lost not yours are your child's. Hope this helps
