Ex has been arrested before,and is do i tell his little boy that we wont be returning to the family home...ever..its sold.
He was born there and knows nothing else apart from living at grans for the last few months since we left.He thinks its cos the house is too small and we need a bigger one,im devastated for him...hes an anxious little chap and misses his his daddy terribly.

my mum is a family mediator.
she says kids can pretty much cope with anything if you tell them the truth.

sorry, a bit curt cos I'm rushing off.
Seems to me he's lucky to have you...good luck.

i agree with GordonR..i split with dh 4 mths ago and i have been totally honest with my dc, and they seem fine at the moment, no sadness or anything..
good luck.
