A friend told me the mother of his child has had another child with someone else but he thinks that the new guy in the picture will be a crap dad. At first I thought what has that got to do with you but then I paused and remembered that maybe he should be concerned. After all this guy will be around his child. What he said after that shocked me.
After a little more conversation but I won’t bore you with the detail he went on to say that if he cannot afford to extend anything that he buys for his child to their new sibling he just won’t bother at all. I thought to myself why should your child go without because their mother has had another child? There must be some middle ground in this. Maybe he’s just be a really thoughtful guy or should all parents whose kids have half siblings be doing something along these lines? Or continue to spend on only their kids?
