  • You don't. I would only tell her that daddy is going to live somewhere else now and let her ask all the questions. You can answer her questions when she asks them.

  • It sounds like your daughter is too young to need to know the details... A simple "mommy and daddy don't live together, but we both love you very much" should suffice if she's of preschooler age!

  • i would just say mommy and daddy will not be living together any more but we both love you and that wont change anything. and like a previous poster suggested let her ask the questions.

  • she wont understand at all.she will just see daddy n mommy arent together like normal.but as long as hes still in her life it wil not effect her growing up n wont turn to hte either.just tell her daddy going bye bye,or work n see him soon okay,then distraact her with a game or snack so wont turn into crying
