advice on how to talk to kids about divorce?
You can read the details in my last post, but I am filing for divorce from DH due to his heroin/pill addiction and his refusal to get real treatment for his issues.
We have an almost 4 year old together, a baby on the way, and he has SD11. I don't think it's my place to talk to SD about it (she lives with BM right now anyway), but what about our daughter? She is so little and keeps asking when daddy is coming home. So far I have been saying he's at work (it's not unusual for him to travel for work) and I have called and let her talk to him but she has not seen him in almost a week.
I have no problem with him coming to see her as long as he is sober but he knows he is not going to be unsupervised with her and is not going to take her anywhere. I don't want to confuse her either with him coming to the house, but there is no way I am letting him take her out of my sight.
Any advice when the child is this young? I even thought about taking her to a counselor but I don't want to blow things out of proportion and make it even worse.
