Our expert says:
Maybe the child is thinking that she's lost her dad, and that these men might take away her mom - she may not feel secure that you still love her ( people often don't realize thast love is the only thing you can give to others and never run out of it yourself, so they feel if you love asnyone else it somehow MUST mean less love for them )
But no child should have access to your cell-phone to read your SMS - whether or not you have anything to hide, that's just not appropriate behaviour for a child.
If she doesn't know a fair bi abou sex and condoms - why would she be in the least distressed by finding any in your bag ( which she should of course not have been going through ).
Parents often forget that you never have a monopoly on what your kids know about anything, including sex, death, and relationships - they will figure i out and hear from others, often inaccurately, so its important to chat with them quite often about such topics, as much to check what they've discovered, and correcting their errors or misinformation.
So one would wonder how she knows about condoms. POSSIBLY at school, but it'd be important to check.
Your daughter is entitled to be concerned about losing you and your love, and you need to discuss this frankly with her, finding out what she knows, suspects and worries about, so you can know what to re-assure her about.
Is there any good reason why you should not tell her / your daughters about the relationship ? Hiding it probably makes it feel dirty and sinister to her
