A child of divorce
Hi guys, My wife and I have divorced for 6 years.
My son is now 8 and he lives with his mother.
I get to see him twice a month.
I try really hard to be a good father.
Recently I told him that I have dated someone.
He got sad and now he doesn't want to talk to me or look at my face.
It's rally hard to explain it to him.
What should I do?
Hi Kids re used to seeing their parents as a unit,together. Divorce of the parents is a hard reality to accept for them and it becomes more ifficult if the parents start dating. But as time passes, and kids grow up, get mature they realize and accept things. You probably need to have a casual chat about this with your kid and then perhaps not discuss your other personal stuff with him, till the time you feel he is not ready. Spend quality time with your child and try to keep his mind away from this revelation of yours. Do things that make him happy, and eventually he will start talking to you again.
