Dd asked why her dad doesn't come get her more. He gets her 1-2 days a week. Visits changed since his work schedule changed. I told dd i don't know. She knows his work schedule changed. She's almost 8. Don't really know what to tell her.

Just curious... how many kids do you have and how old are they?

Is he able to get her more?

If you won't allow it or he can't because of work then tell her that...

If it's that he just isn't then telling her to ask him is what I would do...


But I definitely would reassure her either way that he loves her and ots not her fault.

I have 4. I know what you are going to ask. No I'm not that poster who denies her daughter her dad

I don't know the truth. I don't know why her dad isn't getting her more

He is able to. He works nights and sleeps while she's at school

Why don't you ask him then so you can help her understand?
