It happened a long time ago and he has paid his debt to society, but our children are getting older and we have never moved from our home town, where it happened. I dread someone asking them about it at school. So far, we have been lucky and haven't had to deal with it. But, I do try to teach my kids that honesty is the best policy, so I would like to practice what I preach. My husband is a productive and contributing member of society, a great, loving, and nurturing father, who just happened to make terrible decisions in his younger years.Answer Question

Tough one. How old are the kids? I would roll it up into a speech when they are tweens/teens about consequences & what happens. You can then have your husband express his regrets or what his feeling are about what happened to him.
Really unsure here though, just a thought.

I would explain to the older one soon that daddy made a mistake and this is what happen trust I have been in this situation and you want to say something before some little kid on the play yard makes fun of one of the kids about there dad being a bad guy and he killed someone. I know as a mother you want to protect the children for as long as possible, Your children will grow up knowing that there's no secrets and that there's nothing but honesty in there home and that they can come to mom and dad when ever they need something. Keep these lines open earlier then later it's a lot easier in the long run.
