Need some help ladies..

Babysitting grandchildren. Daddy, unfortunately, has found his way to jail. Grandchildren saying they miss daddy... It's breaking my heart, but mommy has already told them he is in jail. What do I say to them? I don't want to be mean, but I want them to know he is okay..

  • I'd just tell them daddy did something wrong and that now he is in jail, being punished. I'd tell them it's kind of like time-out, but for adults. That's the best way I can think of to describe it for them.

  • Dad is going to be back but right now he has to take care of some business.
