I have 6 children and they all have the same last name but only two of them actually have the same father. The person I was married to is the person who they all call "dad" but he's actually the dad of two of my kids. The rest of them have 2 different dads.
My kids are 6,8,11,13,15 and 16. Now I got divorced I want to tell them the truth. How do I tell them? Should I wait until the little one is older?

I think that you need to get honest with ALL of your children. Your children are all old enough to know the truth. I believe being honest with your children from the beginning. They need to know that they can trust there mother and that there mother is gonna be always honest with them. Of Course your 6 and 8 yr old need to be told in a 6 and 8 yr old nature but your there mother and honestly is the best especially with your children.
I do believe everyone parents differently but this situation is something that should have been clear from the beginning. I wish you all the best I am sorry if i came off rude or bitchy but i just believe honesty with your children from the beginning is VERY,VERY IMPORTANT.
