What to Tell a Child About His Daddy
My partner and I just had a beautiful baby boy on Father's Day. The problem that has been on my mind is what to say when our son is old enough to ask about his father. We are aware that this will come up, probably sooner than what we are hoping, and we want to be prepared.
A lot of people have told us to lie to him until he is old enough to fully understand. You know, tell him things like his father passed away, or that his daddy and his mommy didn't get along so they decided to not be together. But that's not the vibe that we want our son to have.
We want our son to know that we have so much love for each other that we knew we could have a beautiful baby and give all that love to him. We tried for him, we waited and now that he is finally here, the last thing we want to do is lie to him.
If we lie to him, we will have to keep on lying every time he asks about it. Please help us with this problem.
