I am not a mom but a mr mom since my wife died 2 months ago. I have a 16, 14 and 12 year old, 2 girls and a boy. Anyone have any advice on things to look for as a result of them losing their mom at such a critical time in their lives? Any and all help would be appreciated, as I am at a loss to put it mildly. Thank you

Mr. Mom I'm sooo sorry for your loss. Heartbreaking. I myself haven't lost a loved one but I did have to care for my sisters little boys after she left them - I found it important to remind them of special things about their mom. They sometimes got angry at me which comes with territory.
Personally I'd keep your oldest busy so trouble doesn't creep in. I'm not sure if I helped at all but I just felt the need to reach out. Hang in there.

Thank you for your kind words and advice. I am fortunate that in the short time my wife was here, she was a great mom and the kids are really great. I just want to keep
them on the straight and narrow because I lost my own father at about the same age and I know what can happen from my own personal experience.
Thank you again!
