Hello. I have a almost 5 year old (Aug. 23) and he is wondering why his father doesn't call him anymore. He has even asked if he died, to which I told him he didn't..but really didn't know what to tell him without consulting someone cause I am not sure what to tell him! His father and I were together for the first two years of our lives, but our child was living with my mom and dad. I have been living with my mom, dad and son for the past 3 years. He use to call and check in on him occassionally and now, I have found out that his dad wants to move on with his life and he chooses not to be a part of his life. How do I answer my little guy when he asks to call his dad?? I so don't want him to be hurt, especially at the ripe age of almost 5 or to have him think that he doesn't want to be part of his life cause little man is one of the coolest people I know, loving, well adjusted, smart and very considerate of others for his age. What do I do.
His grandparents on the dad's side?? How do I handle communications with them also? If I let him have communications with them, he knows they are his father's parents, won't that cause more questions about his dad not wanting to be involved in his life? What to do....please help.
Thank you very much.
