“Mommy doesn’t love me anymore and is moving out.”
“I’m going now because your mother is kicking me out.”
This is just a sample of some of the things I’ve heard (or heard of) divorced parents say to their children in the last month. Unfortunately I’m not allowed to walk up and slap these people – because I really want to. Each one was said in a fairly calm manner, yet there seems to be no sense of just how harmful these words are.
