I had a baby and was pregnant when I met my soon to be ex husband. We were together for almost 9 years, and had two children of our own together. To my oldest 2, his step son and daughter, he was Daddy, to them he still is their daddy. He was a wonderful father to them up until the last year he turned abusive and I left. At first he still asked about all the kids, but one day he said that I should not make him feel responsible about his step kids. He only calls now to ask about the two children we had together. We have shared custody of our 2. How do I explain to my older two that he does not want to be daddy anymore? He had always said that no matter what happens between him and I that he would be there for them, I mean, he has been daddy to them since the oldest was 3 months and the other since birth. (BTW we had known each other for a long time beforehand and were really close before) so it's not like some random guy.Answer Question

OP you know what I would do. Cut him out!!!!!!!!!!I will get bashed to the wall with this but I do not care. If he can forget about children he raised just because his blood does not flow through their veins he can and might do it to the others. MY brothers father and my mom were never married but he was my daddy. I had a father and I had a daddy. Well when he left it was me he forgot about first and than my brother. My poor baby bubby has not see nor heard from his "father"( I use quotes because he is a sperm donor he is no father)in over 1 year. My brother has no male figure because him and my SO do not get along(my brother is 16 and my SO is 31 and my brother sometimes is too big for his britches)They used to until my brother got it with some not to nice people. Anyway if this is really hurting your boys you give that "man" a choice all or nothing. Harsh yes but these are kids not puppies!
