How do you explain your broken relationships to your children?
The best thing you can do is be upfront and honest with your children. Cupid has some tips:
1. Honesty is the key: Situations are always a lot easier when you are honest with yourself and others. No matter what age, just be honest with your children. Let them know that nobody is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. Also, just because your past relationships didn’t work out, it doesn’t mean they were all bad experiences. Let them know that.
2. Don’t play the blame game: Be sure to admit to your faults. Teach your kids that right is right and wrong is wrong. Don’t make it seem like it’s all the other person’s fault, when it most likely wasn’t. A relationship consists of two people and each has their own issues.
3. Reassure them: Tell your children that you don’t plan on making the same mistakes again. Then, show them through your actions that you’re serious about that statement.
