    Hi

    Clutching at straws here a bit , I left my alcoholic wife in March this year , and then removed my son in June , who now lives happily with me and is very settled , tragically his mother died recently very suddenly , he has not seen his mum since the summer as he was at risk with her due to her addiction.

    He seems to be coping very well , but i feel like I’m waiting for some sort of reaction from him , I was wondering if any other forum members have gone through similar experience ?

     

    Cheers

    Yes,I have very similar circumstances to yourself,I too waited and waited since April 2016,my son was 7 n half and now he just turned 9. To date there has been no major impact in terms of going off the rails. I always allow my son to talk about his mum and we have a few photos of her on display,we always remember her on her death and her birthday. My philosophy was not to talk about her unless he wished to,just concentrate on today and tomorrow.
