Dr. Mr. Cosby,
There is a woman I know named "Trina." Trina got involved with a man, "Coby," who was, and still is, no good.
When Trina and Coby first became a couple, her friends, including male friends, told her Coby was not right for her or any woman, and that she should move on. Later, ONE of Coby's children's mother came to Trina and said she realized her time with Coby is over. She didn't care. All she cared about was Coby spending time with their child AND paying child support. She told Trina that since Coby isn't taking care of their child, why would he take care of their children, if they had any. This is the same question I asked Trina.
Trina ignored the advice and had children by Coby. Coby disappeared from Trina and their children's lives. I'll mention now that Trina gets his other children so that her children will know and love their step-siblings.
Despite the encouragement and advice of friends and family, Trina doesn't get involved in her children's education. Trina's mother and siblings take up the slack in this area.
Mr. Cosby, what should the friends and family do?
