There’s something harder than going through a divorce. It is letting your children out with the other parent (I’m using the word parent loosely here). It doesn’t get easier with time. It is as if after all the heartbreak we went through I wish the children will be spared of more disappointments. I pray to God that there will never be a time when I fail to stand up for them. I try not to be cruel and separate them from their father but I am often left with these questions. Is this good for my children? Or is this good for the father? So he feels that he is not a total absentee?
What goes in my children’s mind and emotions is a mystery to me. I hope all the movies, video games and happy meals are enough to make them feel their dad’s presence in their lives.
