My babys father left when he found out I was pregnant. how do I tell my 5 year old son his father never wanted him.
I have never had a father...
when I was younger my mam just told me that I didn have a father because they broke up...I was young when she told me because I asked her where my dad is.
you should tell him that.
dont tell him the specifics until he is around 12-13. when he gets to that age tell him his father was immature and thats why he didn want you.
dont just say ''he didn want you''
that would be really bad
When it comes time, tell him that his father was overwhelmed and couldn't handle the responsibility.
That way the fault will lie with the father (where it belongs).
** 'father never wanted him' **
implies a father's rejection of the son which your son might take to mean that he (your son) is worthless - rather than the father being worthless (which he was).
Never say directly his father didnt want him, when he's s little older explain him that there was things out of your control, your father was scared and left because of it, that doesnt mean he didnt want you it means he thought you would be better off without him because he didnt think he could be the best daddy for you and you deserved more then that.
well, dont tell him now, for now tell him that his father is just away, like on vaycation, then when he gets older tell him that his father loved him very, veryyy much, but couldn't handle having a child, because he couldn't support him. kay? pleassee dont hurt your child. :(. im here if you need me! :D.
You're going to have to lie for now. Why would you tell your 5 year old son,who barely knows what the real world is,that his father never wanted him? That could mess him up mentally and change him forever.
Tell him when he's around the age of 12.
DO NOT TELL HIM!!! HE IS TOO YOUNG TO KNOW!!! THAT COULD CAUSE DEPRESION WHEN OLDER AND EVEN ATTEMPTED SUIDIDE/ ACTUAL SUICIDE. TRHAT WOULD DESTROY HIM AT HIS AGE. IF YOU STILL WANT TO TELL HIM WHEN HE IS OLDER
I asked my mom when I was about 5 and she simply told me ''me and your dad didn't like each other that much, but we both care about you dearly''.
Now, I hate my dad and hope he dies, but its all good.
Well tell him that super man (dad) needed to go save the world so mama had to take care of ... (sons name)
he wants to know why his friends have all have fathers and he doesnt. he wants to know who his father is
does he need to know? how about if you never tell him because by telling him it could really hurt him
^^^NO. do not tell him that he didnt want him. that would RUIN HIM!!!
you should wait. he is way too young for that!!!
Don't tell him.
