My husband and I have decided to get divorced after a long time of him mistreating my kids (mainly my sons and especially my middle son Thomas). He became very obsessed with the boys being very masculine, and Tommy is a little more sensitive and artistic rather than manly and athletic like his older brother. I'd decided that it had gone too far, and now he's not living with us anymore. My kids are all handling it differently- Weston just kinda shrugged it off when I told him and left quickly to his room. Lately I feel like I barely ever see him and all he does is play his guitar super loud in his room. The same goes for Tommy, except he's completely withdrawn himself from everyone and I'm very concerned because he won't talk about it with anyone. Im reluctant to send him to therapy because I have trouble admitting that my son might have "issues", even though going to therapy isn't that big of a deal. The girls are more verbal about it, like usual, and didn't have any problem crying it out and asking questions about why. My youngest son seems to be handling it fairly well too and talking about it when it's bothering him, though he hasn't really cried over the matter. So what do you think? Thank you very much for your responses!
