My husband and I split up in May and his girlfriend is expecting their child at the end of March. I'm very unhappy about our children, 4 and 2, being exposed to this so soon after we split up. How would you manage this situation - we are still to move out of our house and the kids will need to start new schools and nursery so have a lot of change ahead of them.

kids are very resilient. They will have to meet this woman some time even if the relationship doesn't work out ( this child will be a brother or sister) The girlfriend will always be in their fathers life because of the child. I think its better to get it over and done with in a positive way. ( i do speak from experience)

i have 3 kids and have been through the exact same thing and my kids were absolutely fine. kids are not stupid, just explain the situation in a way they will understand. its been 7 months now i think you should put your feelings out of the way and think about them

Im in school right now studying young kids, im not an expert but i also have a daughter who is three, and im here to tell you that with all the changes going in their lives they will be stressed out and you should wait as long as possible to make this change. not only will it be hard on them but they will start scting out and it will be harder on you as well. I encourage you to wait!

I would be fuming if I were you. I would tell them to try and keep the distance for now due to all the changes already for them also you don't know how stable there relationship is so it could all fall apart
