Hello and thank you for consulting us at JA,

At this age the child only needs the most general and short answer. It will be enough to satisfy her. Underneath her question is a more important concern and that is, Does Daddy and Mommy love me? Is this my fault?

So answer like this...Sometimes Daddies and Mommies stop loving each other for many different reasons. It happens and they go on to marry other people who become your step-parents. No matter what, your Daddy and Mommy will always love you though. It is not your fault and you will always have them both in your life.

Thanks for asking and hope this helps.
