Thank God my son's father sees him every weekend. He works two jobs and canot see him during the week, so all the free time he has, which is on the weekends, he spends with him.

Recently, my son Noah, has been telling me everyday that he misses his Daddy so much and that he wishes he had a Daddy around everyday!!!

What am I to say to this without falling apart???

You tell him the truth, Daddy is working and sees him as much as he can.

I agree that telling him the truth is best. My daughter wants to see her father a lot and I tell her that he is working a lot.

That's all you can do.  Just be honest with him.  It will get easier for him over time.  Thank God he has a father who wants to be with him and that helps provide for him!

Kids are pretty resilient. You can be honest with him without becoming anxious of his feelings. He's already hurting that he can't see his dad everyday so...

The truth. That and dad both love him but get along better living in separate houses. Try not to make it about you. And the loss of the relationship and just make it about a kid missing his dad.

 Let him know every family is different.  You understand he is sad but  and he gets to see his daddy on the weekends.
