My ex husband ignores our kids but wants me to tell them about his crack addicted baby.
Last summer I found out his wife was pregnant and they had separated. The baby was born the end of January and it had methadone, heroin and crack in its system. My ex gave my number to thethe social worker. She called me to ask for info on my ex and his wifes parenting. I told her how my ex was when he and I were together which wasn't so bad. I would trust him but with his wife he's a totally different person. After they went to court for placement my oldest child found on his facebook that his father had gotten back with his wife. My son didn't even know about the baby and is very upset now.
I really didn't want my kids to know about the baby and definitely didn't want them to feel upset or abandoned. My son says he feels betrayed by his dad.
Not only did my ex ignore our children for his new wife but now he's trying to rub it in and hurt our kids.
I have refused to tell our younger children and have told my ex not to mention it.
Am I doing the right thing in the situation? I don't want my opinion on the situation to get in the way of the relationship my kids have with their father but I feel I need to protect them from this bad situation.
