I have a 4 year old boy and a 2 year old girl, i'm currently trying to get my divorce as well which means the father is no longer in the picture....my only concer is the kids and the way this whole mess is affecting them. How do i explain to them that 'daddy' will never really come home like he used to? Its so so exausting sometimes and i just try and change the subject as quick as i can after telling them that 'daddy' is far far away working hard and he has no time to come home but he'll call soon. I'm not sure if this is enough or how can i deal with this. How long will it take really for them to understand? Its only been 3 months since he left.
