My ex husband is going to jail and i'm concerned with how to help my 9 yr old and 5 yr old boys deal with it. We have joint custody and my oldest looks up to his father. I don't know if I should tell them the truth, or to keep it from them. I'm afraid my oldest is going to be angry, and disconnect. He is very intellegent and difficult to talk to. My youngest does not have the same bond as the oldest because we separated before he was born, still loves his dad nonetheless. But need advice how to put it in lay terms for him as well.
