Dear Emily,

Let's work out the options.

It is possible that your dad is really going to work. Perhaps his work involves long hours at work. Perhaps he is working hard to support the family.

Or it is possible that your dad has other good reasons for spending long hours outside home, which you do not know at this point.

I think there is no need to think too much about this. What you should do is to find out more information. Perhaps you can ask your mum or your siblings or any uncles or aunties about this, ask them what kind of job your dad does, why does he work long hours, and express your concern.

Or you could even ask him what kind of work he does, tell your dad that you wish to spend more time with him, and are concerned about what he does outside home.

If you don't find out more information, you will keep thinking deeper and deeper and come up with more possible scenarios in your mind, which will cause you to worry unneccesssarily because they may not be happening at all!

Lastly, I encourage you to pray and seek God for wisdom and peace in your heart, amidst all your worrying and thinking. Just seek God and ask for His help, pray and tell Him all your thoughts, troubles. He will see you through this.

I encourage you to trust your father, because he is your father. I believe that your dad would not be doing something directly to hurt the family and you, so trust in his character but show concern while asking him about it.

In Christ,

Trust Him

Tell your dad how much you love and trust him, and tell him that you are worried. Also, try to tell your mom about how you feel. She can help you. Also, pray to God to answer your questions. He will say one of three things:

yes, you deserve to know
not right now
no, you don't need to know
