Hi,

Is there any indication that this was related to the split? As Anonymous says this could be a one off due to a bad day.

My 2nd child was a similar age when I split up with my ex, he found it difficult and struggled with his emotions (although as parents we didn’t handle the situation as well as you and your ex have) . I found that lots of attention but strict boundaries helped. His nursery teacher also did a one on one session with him once a week and they talked about feelings. I  bought lots of books that showed different types of families & situations. Exploring emotions through play is good too.

Good luck.
