4 thoughts on “In Your Opinion: How To Tell Kids About Separation”

  1. I think her answer is spot on. I think it’s important to be honest and to not blame either person. Just to put it out there as a mutual decision.

  2. I told my son pretty much the same thing. That sometimes Mommies and Daddy’s are better if they don’t live together. My ex and I were always happy when my son saw us together. I think it is so important to never talk about their father in a negative way around them. (as hard as it may be sometimes) That is the healthiest for them.

  3. I think her response was spot on. I know when me and my husband separated the few times we did that I sat Owen down and told him in a way that didn’t put down his daddy or make him feel we didn’t love him any. He seemed to understand it to a point at the time but thankfully we were able reconcile.
