I need some advice. What do you say to your child that is used to having his father in his life and he's no longer a part? His father is a truck driver and before it had been easier to say he's working which was true. However, since this fall out between me and his dad, he hasn't been coming around. My son recognizes that. What do I say? I'm at a loss. We once had a discussion about how adults don't always do what they say they will but I mean he's 4.....anything mamas anything...

If its bc of the fallout between you and bd, him not coming around is totally bogus. It's wrong and inexcusable to get the kids in the middle of his parents problems. Just tell him daddy works a lot and that sometimes he just can't be there as often as he did. Never tell him daddy doesn't want to see him or that he doesn't love him. Kids are resilient and if he doesn't come around, ds will adapt easier than you may think.
