How should single parents tell their children about their break-ups?
Relationships can be very complicated, but the complication can be heightened when children are involved. Cindy a caller on the Eusebius McKaiser Show, who is a single parent posed a question to listeners. She is co-parenting with her child's father.
I am going through a break-up with the guy I have been with for the last two years. He has basically been around for the critical years of my child's life. I am nervous as to how I should break the news about the breakup to my son.Cindy, caller
Hilda also called in and says they should not deprive their children from seeing their fathers or men they have a relationship with. Another caller, William, has a different view.
I was a single father for five years or so and what I saw is that you don't introduce your partners to your child from the get-go.William, caller
Tebogo says she is a single mother of a seven-year-old and eight-year-old and the biggest thing for her is that you should not be bringing partners into your home.
How do you introduce a man to your child who you don't know what his intentions with you would be?Tebogo, caller
