My husband and i after 9 years of marriage have seperated. We have a 12 yr old son who we did explain everything to and he seems to be handling it well but we also have a 5 yr. old boy who we have not told because we are not sure what to say that he will be able to understand. We told him for now that daddy has been working at night and thats is why he is not here but we know we need to tell him the truth. We have been seperated for about a month now and telling our son is way over due. Please if anyone has any suggestions on how to go about telling a 5 yr. old in words he will understand i am open to hear all suggestions. Thank u!!!
