“I’m mad at you because I want my daddy to come home!”
Those were the hardest words I’ve ever had to hear my son say to me and my husband. We knew he was hurting emotionally. As parents we never want our children to feel any pain and as mothers we want to make it all better. Children are innocent and pure of heart, free from the scars life can give us. Being a blended family has brought many challenges and issues we have been forced to face but it is our reality daily.
When I divorced, my son was only 3 years old and at the time I had no idea my son would suffer emotionally from my choice years later. As parents we never intend to hurt our children but in our selfishness and frustration we indeed hurt them even if the signs aren’t visible until years later. Divorce is hard on everyone in a family but in my experience it’s our children who suffer most.
Sitting in the middle of our living room Monday night, I watched my 6 year old with tears streaming down his face express his anger and resentment towards me and my husband. to read the rest http://www.blendedbygod.com/?p=111
