How do you explain to your child??

One of my very best friends, ltlbitoffun, knows about this. How do you tell your son that he cant come to stay with you right now...I want him too, but his sister would not come. She loves her mother for some reason...and my son loves his little sister as he calls her(she is almost 10 he is 8 ) Each and everytime my kids and I talk he always wants to know when he can come and live with me. He is just not old enough to understand that his sister doesnt have to come with him...I ache in a way I cant even decribe when I have to persuade him to stay and watch over his sister...

When he reaches the age of ten i will ask them both if they want to stay with me...if both or either want to then it will be off to court I go...I know in my heart that my son will but my daughter wont. I just want them to be old enough to understand better the choice they isnt choosing between parents it is choosing knowing they wont see each other on a regular basis.

I love my children more than the air I breath, but I also dont know how to protect them from being without each other...

I'm so sorry to hear what you are going thru. I have been blessed (if that is the right word) with an ex that could careless so I have my son 24/7. I can't even begin to imagine the pain you must be going thru. But what I would suggest is to just talk with him and let him know that it would mean he wouldn't get to see his sister often, but they could talk on the phone as much as they like. It's not the ideal solution, but more realistic.

I wish you the best. If you ever need an ear to listen look me up.

*hugs and kisses*

Thank you for your comment...I tell him what needs to be said, but it doesnt make things any easier...I am a strong man I will be fine.

wow. I love my children more than life itself so I completely understand. I do not have a life because of them which is hard, but necessary because of their age. Kudos to you baby!
