Dear Pastor Sam Column
Dear Pastor Sam,
After being married for almost 25 years my husband and I got a divorce. I guess you can say it was a two way thing but we have two children that are not adjusting to this change. I don’t know how to handled it do you have any suggestions.
Wanting The Best For The Kids
If you really want to do the right thing I suggest you not teardown your ex-husband to your kids. Do everything you can to keep them in good grace with him. Try to keep their relationship with both parents as much as possible. Don’t go out of your way to try and destroy him in their eyes it will only come back to bite you in the behind.
The children need to have both parents in their lives and if you destroy your ex in their eyes you will affect their future. In affect it will also have an impact on yours too.
You can encourage them to spend time with their Dad and you can make their future better as well as yours. It will help them to adjust if you both will not be idiots and do stupid stuff.
