I'm sorry OP. This happened to me when I was younger and I never understood it. It gets easier for the kid with time, but LOTS of it. just know your ex is kind of a piece of shit for leaving you and your kid and not bothering to be a parent to his own son.
I'm just wondering. Who would be the person to thumbs down all these comments?
No.... #51 I don't think anybody should have the "entitlement" to leave their child permanently with the intent of never seeing them again. That's not exactly okay. Even if the kid is still in good hands with the spouse, you're that child's parent and you're supposed to take care of them. It's a moral contract really.
That's got to be hard, your child will figure it out on their own one day... There are no words, to say to comfort him, just reassure him you will never leave... It gets easier with time..
there is no way she can explain it where it makes sense and the child doesn't think it's their fault no matter how much you tell them it isn't. until the child is older he won't understand. it took me until I was 23 to understand why my dad left when I was 9 and it takes a while to build back a relationship, I'm going to be 27 soon and it still feels awkward for me. I'm an adult, I don't need a parent but he missed me being a kid and he regrets it. it's on the dad, not the child but the child won't get that for quite a while.
Wow. These douche bag people hitting YDI are saying a kid deserves to cry cos their dad left them. Y'all are shitty people.
In this case, the new answer is a rather pointless change. So you have the option of saying, "I sympathize with your plight," or "Better you than me." Not in so many words, of course. But God, that is a horrible situation. My father was always loving and supporting, so I can scarcely imagine what your child is going through.
