I’m going through a divorce. He is gambling addict, cheated on me and neglectful. Most of this was very well hidden from the kids. In their eyes, I just packed up and took them from their home. I know it takes time but how do I help them cope and not feel so betrayed by me without revealing their dad’s shortcomings. Regardless of it all, I believe they have the right to have their childhood protected including thinking their daddy is great. Any experienced advice???
I am curious what the
ages are.........I left my marriage after 30 years.my kids were in their 20“s. one knew about the abuse he did and my oldest did not. So even at that age it was still difficult....because he never saw it or was home for it. I never told them to stop seeing their dad, etc. I told them their relationship should come with some boundaries if they feel thats necessary. truth is the answer.
