how about never?? A father is more than someone who is responsible for half your choromosones (i hope I got that right). Well if you are telling her, don't tell her during her teenage years, one disagreement with her current father and off she goes to search for her biological father to see if he's any good. Tell her once she's in her twenties or something. Each child is different and matures at a different rate. The main thing is your child has the right to know who her biological father is. My girlfriend became pregant some years back and the biological father ditched her. Shortly after she met a wonderful man and they got married and then the birth of the baby. She told her son when he was 12 years old, but she sat him down and explained everything and made sure that he understood that his biological father was unable to handle the raising of him and her son was not At Fault. Her son took it very well, looked at her and said, 'The dad I have is the dad I want!' The reason a child should know who a biological parent is, is because they must know at least the medical history of any illness or conditions the biological parent could have. This is important in the future of your child. Believe it or not, most children will accept their step-father over the biological father. Of course your child will want to face her biological father one day just out of pure curiosity. Only you will know when the time is right to tell your child. You could wait until they are 18 and are ready to be out on their own.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer. It depends on the individual child and family dynamics. It is important to consider the child's emotional maturity and ability to process such information. It is advisable to approach the topic with openness, honesty, and sensitivity, seeking guidance from a mental health professional if needed.
