Advice about what to tell my 9 year old about her Dad
My daughter is 9 but super mature, And I have always been up front and honest about things she ask me where do babies come from? What are gay people and why are they . Stuff like that I tell her as kid friendly as I can but tell the truth. She wants to know about her dad he is a flake calls here and there didn't send her a birthday present never has bought her anything for holidays, Well I am getting married soon to amazing man who not only works and allows me to be a shm he is a great dad involved loving taking an active role so I want us all to have the last name well she shares mine and her dads last name so she has 2 last names stupid I know I was 20 when I had her.Anyway she wants only to keep her real dads last name which really bothers me and she ask me questions about him but by being up front and honest it may seem like I am talking bad about him. He is immature and careless not responsible , had a HORRIBLE temper and has a sex offender charge on him from like 12 years ago which I did not know about when we met or had our daughter, Which all the above is why she is not aloud to go stay with him what should I say to all this I am really not sure.
