Do your children express feelings of abandonment? if so what do you tell them? For those with really young children what do you think you will say if and when they ask?

My oldest son is 9 and he expressed feeling of abandonment for a while. He would tell me his "daddy" lied to them and ask me why he wouldn't come see them. I told him I honestly didn't know why he wouldn't come see them. I told him that he should ask his "daddy" that question. I did try to make excusses at first then quickly relized that it was only hurting them more than the truth did. I also made sure he knew it was in no way his or his brother's fault that it was happening, that they had done nothing wrong. My 2 younger children never did really ask and I guess I would tell them almost the same thing, just that I don't know, all I know is they didn't do anything wrong.
