My daughter has a new boyfriend and wants my granddaughter to call him daddy. This is confusing my granddaughter. What do you think?

  • If your granddaughters father is in the picture, you should have a chat with him. It is his place to say something. Yes, it would confuse the child and of course, you being the grandmother, you are worried. I hope soon your daughter will find the right one so your granddaughter can be in a stable enviroment.

  • Hmm. I totally do not agree with this because it will def. confuse her. She is going to grow up thinking she has had 10 Daddy's. I think that "Daddy" should be saved for someone that will be IN her life long term - someone that will make an impact on her life. BUT... this is JMO! :)

  • I think your child shouldnt call someone their dad unless that is their dad...or if the person has been in her life long enough to prove that he is a good father figure,it seems your daughter is the type to claim every dude she dates as her daughters dad,which is very stupid to me

  • I think she'll be confused by her mother's promiscuity, not matter what she's asked to call the rotating Uncle Daddy Men. The naming is entirely secondary to the real problem.

  • My SO and I have agreed if we ever split up we aren't going to bring the bf gf around until we are sure they are staying.

  • Even though you do not like it. You can not really do much about it.

  • Unles your DD and her new boyfriend get married then her DD should just call him by his name...and if her daddy is still around then she already has a daddy.

    Answer by Shelii at 4:59 PM on Oct. 9, 2010

  • Until there is talk of marriage (serious, planning talk) she should not call him daddy. He's not daddy and hasn't had enough time to fill the role, if he's a new guy.

  • A new relationship, too early to be calling him daddy.
