Hi Just Brenda,

I am a 29-year-old single mother of a four-year-old boy. His father and I were never married and he moved on and married someone else. I have been dating someone else and I am wondering whether to introduce the men I date to him with their names or make up random names for them. At which point should the child start calling a man daddy?

Why are you introducing multiple men to your child? It’s the 21st century and the woman is liberated. Date whoever you want but if you are dating multiple men, do not introduce any of them to your child. You are sending the wrong message to the child about you and about relationships.
