My wife left me for her childhood sweetheart she reconnected with through Facebook. She has moved away from our area to set up home with this guy and is now pregnant by him. How do I tell the kids that their mum no longer wishes to have any contact with them ever again without them feeling totally worthless and knocking their self-confidence through the floor?
She phoned to say she is cutting off all contact with us. The kids will be asking soon when she is due to see them. Eldest boy has been texting his mum but gets no reply. What the hell do I say to them – the boys are 10 and 12 and I don’t think “Mam really loves you but…” is going to explain this one away.
Do I act like its a temporary thing and give them false hope? This is just going to totally destroy them if I’m not careful here. Help! Thanks Alistair.
