My 4 year-old son asked my mom if he has a dad? and where is he? why he never visits him? He started to ask this coz he just attended family day in their school and saw his classmates with their dads; I am a single mom and working abroad. My mom told him that he has a dad and just asked his mom (me) about the reason why his dad is not around? How can I explain to him without hurting his feelings? I don't want to confuse him or maybe he will misunderstand the whole thing...

What you tell him depends on why his dad isn't around. My daughter's father and I got divorced when she was 4. She asked me constantly why we couldn't live with daddy anymore. I told her that sometimes adults just cannot live together but it's ok and both of us love her very much.
