How do you tell your son that his dad doesn't


#1

Dear Fed UP:

Only a judge can tell you that you have to leave your home. Your husband may never come to his senses. Don’t tell you son anything about his dad … except that he loves him. Don’t make excuses and don’t say negative things. Your son will soon make up his own mind about his dad, his love, and his amount of respect for his father. Then, you will see that you made the right decision by just spending your time with your son and letting his father make his own relationship. Best of luck.

Thanks so much again. My son is only 4 - but he knows what is going on and told me last night that me, him and sissy will be fine. Daddy has to find his own path. And it is up to him to make it work with him.

Everything is gonna be alright…

want to spend time with him any longer?

My husband has lost his mind, in the last month. He has changed dramatically (this is like my 6th post).

My son is so wonderful - he is loving and giving. I am so worried that if I am forced to leave my home due to my husband’s actions that my son will become a different person all together.

Where do I begin?
