My child ask me how come i am a single parent. What do i SAY? I want to shield him from the truth

It depends on your child's age and the situation you are in. It also depends on your child's understanding of what has happened. In my view, the truth, told gently is still the best. It's impoatnat that the child get any information straight from you instead of friends or careless relatives. Alternatively, if you still want to shield your chid from the truth, it is best to brief friends and relatives on what to say and what not to say in your child's presence
