My little girl is 7 and she is getting all upset about her Dad not being here this Christmas. Her Dad is in prison and this will be their first Christmas apart since she was born.
I will try and make sure she has a brilliant Christmas but she doesn't want to talk about what presents she wants or anything. She usually loves Christmas but does not seem interested at all. She didn't even want to go to the town's light switch-on the other night which is really unusual for her because she loves it. I know there will be other children going through this and it's really hard a parent to deal with, but I just wanted to share my problem with your other readers just to let someone somewhere know that they are not alone when it comes to things like this.
