Introducing Half Siblings


How do I introduce a half sister to a three year old child? He does not understand that Jj (father of both children) is even his Dad. Jj is not present in his life nor the sister's life. The sisters Mom and I both agree they need to know each other, but it's really confusing for me as an adult when neither of them know who their Dad is. I am working on the assumption that it is best for them to know each other.

Zayn still does not know either parent as "Mom or Dad". He has been with me since Dad left at 2 months and Mom left less than 18 months. Zayn hears cousins call their parents Mama and Papa, but until this point doesn't ask about his Mom and Dad.

Help! Thanks!
