    Hello

    My husband and I are his  separated.  Any tips on telling a teenager (14) and keeping him feeling supported.   Seems hard in the midst of other the other teenage angst and challenges.  Just want him to come out safe and happy.  Thanks

    Hi reb43 my son is just 6 so way off being a teenager but I found it was so hard for me to say the things he needed because I was so upset at first- I found some good books out there that helped explain it all in a good way so I didn’t have to find the words! I’m not sure if that works for teens too. Also he likes it now when I tell him he has parents in two houses and that can be crap sometimes, but despite that he is ok, and he will be ok. Hang in there, you will find what works for you guys. Good luck!
