    Hi. Any hints with my 11 year old. She has been angry towards me since her dad and I broke up. He cheated although I’ve never told her why we broke up. It’s been tough and I’ve been snappy at times. She seems hostile and as her previously disinterested dad now spoils her she can be almost distainful of me. Trying to raise her to have all good values but struggling… anyone been through similar?

    You may find that honesty is the best policy,at an appropriate time sit yourselves down,explain to her what has happened and how you feel. You could also explain to her the implications of splitting up such as finances and access to her dad. I am confident that she will be better balanced by being within the circle rather than out.

    Honesty is always best. I just didn’t want to draw her in to feeling torn in any way as I wanted her to be close to him. Thank you for replying
