Idk how to handle this. My 5 year old has never asked or even noticed anything was different about our family. I know the time was sure to come and im glad she is asking but idk what to say to her or what words to use and not use when telling her. Her dad and i are divorced. We have not seen him in 3 years. I have not goten child support in almost a year now and he never calls or sends anything. The last time i even heard from him was on March 25 on my oldests birthday. He called at like 9 at night. I was putting her to bed and did not see my phone till almost 10 and by that time she was already asleep (no he did not tell me he was going to call, he has never called before). She has asked where he is before and i always tell her that he lives far away (truth, he lives in FL and we are in TN). The other day my mom picked her up from daycare and she began to ask the questions. Where is my dad ? Why is he so far away ? Can i see him ? Etc Etc. I dont know how to best handle this. Im struggling financially as it is. I cant afford 3 plain tickets or to drive all the way down there not to mention hotel and what not. Anyone have any advice on how to handle this the best way ? Without hurting her or haing her be angry at me ??
