Our expert says:
People who are divorced or separated often feel a sense of guilt about this in regard to their kids, over-estimating the degree of hurt this may have caused them, In fact, kids tend to react to divorce or other major events in their life, taking a cue from their parents. If the parents take this calmly, so, usually, will the kids. But the parent who feels guilty tends to over-react, and perhaps becomes over-indulgent and over-protective, which isn't actally beneficial for the kids.
It would benefit all of you for you to have a calm discussion about these matters --- abou feling hurt and over-looked, about concerns to ensure both of you parent the kids as well as posible, and so on, and maybe suggest some sessions of couples counselling to explore these issues and to come up with the best solutions for all of you
And happy Mothers Day !
