yea i no, its exactly how i feel and everytime he walks out and doesnt cum bak it hurts my son and hes only 18 months and you cnt explain to thm at tht age, and i want my boy to no his real dad coz every kid has there rite but i guess ill just keep ths up till my sons old enough to make the decsion for himself its seems to be the only option, its just painful seeing your kids face change wen he askes for dad and you have to tell him tht dads not around it always hurts him

Unfortunately, I would have to say yes. My DS (9) and DD (7) haven't seen their BD in 2 yrs. He walked out when I was 8 wks pregnant with my DD after begging me to try ... but every time he comes back and acts sincere I give him another chance ... I am ALWAYS there to dry the tears and soothe the pain but I have to. They have the right to make their own choices on him and think what they want ... regardless of what I already know.

I would allow him to have something to do with his son because every child has a right to no their father. However if i were in your shoes i'd be making sure that he really wanted to be a part of your son's life and that he is ready to take on the responsibilty of having a child. Because it wont be good for you or your son if he decides that he has had enough of the responsibilty thing and just walks out of your son's life again. This is just what i would do as every child has a right to no their father but sometimes their better off without them in their lives because their not ready for the responsibilty of having a child. I hope this helps you a little bit and i wish you all the luck in the world for you and your son. Good luck.
