I've been where you are, my son is 4 years old now. Me and his father are a part for almost 2 years. My son also asked in the beginning about his Dad, as his father changed a lot after our spilt towards spending time with him etc .. but I just always reassured my son that his Daddy love him and miss him too, but it gets better as time goes by, this father's ways towards him has not changed as he has a new baby and spends little time with his son, but when he ask for my son I give him, when he calls I allow my boy to talk, but my son stopped asking for him as time went but I still tell him that his Daddy love him when he ask once in a while. I am raising him alone and enjoy every moment of this childhood and Thank God everyday for the privilege of being his mommy. Always try to keep good communication with your daughters Dad even he if he is a 'major loser' , as its good for them to see you are at least getting along or trying.

Dad is too busy never has much time for her he works all the time. I don't allow him to to visit because he is very unstable and he always causes a scene around her which upsets her for a few days. For now they only communicate by telephone. he refused to pay child support so I've had to go to court to help me get some kind of child support out of him.

Does Dad not want to be in the picture? If he does maybe you can place phone calls in between visits. You should be receiving child support which will help out some.

As for everything else, try to be positive it is hard, but doors will open, it just doesn't always happen as fast as we want it to.
