When a boy experiences the absence of his earthly dad at a very young age, the emotional loss is not of an actual person with a specific face but the idea of a dad, someone who is there consistently to ask questions, play, and do the normal things that the dad would do. 

How do you work through the emotions of an absent dad who suddenly appears back into your life?

In this episode, Christian discusses

  • Navigating emotions from having an absent dad
  • How and when to share the story of Dad when there are difficult aspects 
  • Wisdom on if/when a young man should seek out an absent dad
  • Encouragement for single moms as the authority in the home
