I am posting this for a friend of mine in this situation. Here it is in a nutshell. They had a very volatile relationship. When she became pregnant he left. He showed up in the delivery room when she gave birth to their son. They got a divorce soon after he was born. They had joint custody for awhile but he hardly ever came to see his son. She recorded during his 3rd and 4th years about a total of 25 hours in 2 years that he visited or came and got him. This started to affect the little boy. So my friend suggested he give up his rights and he took her up on it and had his lawyer draw up the papers. Now the little boy is 7 and is beside himself wanting to see his daddy. He has a few memories of him. He's very angry at his mom and thinks she is keeping him from seeing him. My friend doesn't know what to do. She doesn't want to tell him that his daddy doesn't want him. Please be kind offer any advice you can. THX!Answer Question

Well I will tell you what my mom did. She said he did not know how to love me because he was never loved as a child(which is true) and that it was his loss. I was 3 when my dad left. After I lived with him for 4 months when I was 14 I realized that if in fact my mother did keep me from him, she was right to, and almost 10 years later my father is still a scumbag. So I think your friend should tell him that. Just that he does not know how to love him he can not even love himself and that it would be worse for him to see him for even a little while and then have him leave again. Tell him that it is his fathers loss because he is such a wonderful young man and that he should succeed to spite him and NEVER fail and blame him. It worked for me.
