Should I tell my son that he has a half sister? I think I should however his dad doesn't want him to know. I'm concerned that if I don't tell him and he finds out on social media he'll be angry at us. Should we tell him? He is 13

He has Michelle and his parents also. I told him several years ago that I thought our son should know and he threatened suicide. Children are nothing to be ashamed of and I think my son will be upset that his dad has hidden his daughter. What's worse is that I believe she is in foster care. My husband and I have two more children and we would have welcomed her into our home but I know my ex partner would have said we were only interfering to make him look bad. My ex will be furious when I tell him that we have to tell our son. I just seem to be the only concerned about the kids and how this will and had effected them. I don't want to upset his dad but he is only concerned about himself and it's time the kids were put first.
I feel so much better about our decision now Michelle. Thank you for responding:)

Surely he can't have kept her a secret for the last 10 years? That's madness.
He has Fathered another child and he doesn't want people to know, he needs help.
Is he even in his daughter's life?
Does he tell people about your son? I can't understand why he doesn't want people to know about her.

Thanks Michelle. She is my ex partners child and he doesn't want other people to know. She is only a few years younger than my son. I also think my son should know.
