My now 3-year old grandson's mother left the family home when he was 18 months old and has visited him at his home for a couple hours about every 6 weeks or so. She doesn't show much interest in the child and rarely plays or talks to him. He lives with his father and they have a great relationship, a nice clean home, stability, love and caring.
Recently, the 3 year old has been learning nursey rhymes about mommy and daddy and baby brother, mother bear etc. Do you think he misses his mother?
