My daughter left my grandson's father almost a year ago. In that time he's come to see him twice and called maybe another 3 times. He is five years old so he remembers and asks almost daily when he will see his daddy and can he talk with him.

The father is involved in drugs and does not work or support this child. How do we handle his questions? He acts up at times and says it's because he misses his daddy. He starts kindergarten today and I don't want him to have problems at school.
