@Alissa he’s forsure saying daddy, he speaks pretty clearly. And he’s usually saying mommy and then daddy or daddy then mommy, he’s pairing them.
Say your mom and dad and explain that some kids don’t even have a mom or dad foster care grandparents extra I get this 110% it legit sucks
My daughter sees her dad here and there but she’s never called him daddy. she’s always call him mommy and would try and get her to say daddy. but she came home from daycare as well yelling daddy, calling any man she saw daddy (and i hate that so much cause she knows who her dad is) she calls my boyfriend daddy and he doesn’t mind, he has other kids. but i just don’t want her to get confused. but would i be wrong for being totally okay with her actually forgetting her dad? cause he comes around when he feels like, hasn’t bought a thing for her even when we were together.
My little sister was doing the same thing. Her dad didn’t want anything to do with her so hasn’t been in her life at all then he passed away but since about 2 she kept talking about her dad and how she wanted a dad and how everybody had one but her. I honestly think it’s just a natural thing. Most kids have a dad even if they are a dead beat and then they teach about parents at school at about that age. Ik it’s hard on you but you just gotta be supportive maybe talk to his dad since he called for his birthday. My mom kind of just ignored it but it never really went away she talked about it less but if someone said sum bout a dad she was sad saying she didn’t have one. It wasn’t until her dad passed last year and my mom told her that she kind of got over it that and the fact that my mom has a long term bf now
Is he just calling out Daddy, or is he saying Daddy where are you When is Daddy coming etc, cuz if he's just calling Daddy out loud, are you sure he's really saying Daddy and not something else??
My son does the same thing hasn't been active in a year but talks about him as if he's around daily but my boyfriend is around a lot so I think he may be referring to him as his daddy
It has to be from school and what he watches he’s very intuitive at his young age, I definitely don’t encourage for him to call an absent parent 🙁 But that’s a good suggestion, I’ll try that tomorrow if he continues with it
Did you ask him why he wants daddy? It’s most likely from something he has saw at daycare, maybe even another child being picked up or talking about their father, or maybe they read a book showing fathers?
@Erica technically it’s not on you if she forgets him since he’s inconsistent. I would just tell her that ur boyfriend is stepdad, just so as she’s growing up she has that clarity
