Ok my son is almost 5 and autistic (High functioning) he is extremely smart. He has been really asking about his dad lately. His dad doesnt come to see him, but if we happen to see him at his work he likes to act like father of the year and do the whole daddy loves you blah blah blah but he NEVER comes to see him or call to check on him he always has an excuse, oh ive been sick, oh im so tired. He has another child thats younger than mine that he shares custody with and keeps on his days off . He has came to see my son one time in a year and that was to drop of a present his sister bought my son. Anyways Im trying to figure out what to say to him, he is really smart like I said but I also have to remember hes only 4. Ive told him some kids have only mommies hes still keeps on. i said well you have a mimi and tan tan (my mom and aunt) and some kids dont. Not all families are the same- he still keeps on asking.
