Have Parenting Questions? Ask a Parenting Counselor for Answers
In a few years, my son will start to ask questions about his father when he starts going to school. I think my son will feel odd when kids talk about their father and he does not know his. My son is starting to call my father "Dad" and I correct him and say, no that is your "Grandpa". I think my son needs another man to teach him how to be a man and who understands what men go through in life. There are so many boys who grow up without a father and I don't want my son to resent me because of it.
No, I definitely don't feel like he would be a good role model. I do have a lot of men who work full-time and are good role models around for my son and I will make sure that I have these men around my son. By the way, around what age should I explain about his son not being in his life?
