"A question:How are the children handling the situation? I would recomend that even if you think they are handling it ok you let them know they will always have you and that you will love them no matter what, which I am sure you are doing. Another…"

"I keep imagining him alone in this scenario. But using your example, maybe... "your mommy will always love you, and she'll always be your mommy, but she can't live with us anymore.""

"I think that may be the best way to handle the situation with both parents available and willing.  Doing it singly is probably the next best way."

""It may be that there's no "good" way to put it, only lesser versions of bad."  I believe you've put it rightly there. My father moved out to "find himself" shortly after I joined the military and my…"

"About your edit... "I would never tell a child that their mommy can't be their mommy, ever. Reason, they'll believe that it was something about them that made mommy not want to be their mommy, kids do this all the time. They blame…"

"I think the fact that she signed away custody and her actions, which I hope he documented, prior to this will weigh heavily in the future; and any actions she takes until that poiont, which again I hope he documents as well.  Also, it depends…"

"Maybe I'm giving her too much credit, but I expect it's just a matter of time before she realizes what it is she's done. And when she does, she's going to want those kids back. I hope he gets his paperwork squared away quickly."

Margie replied to Victor Paul's discussion The future scares me.
"That's not a bad way to put it. My concern is that the children would blame themselves for mommy not wanting to live with them. But that may be more of a concern for the five year old, whereas the two year old would know mommy was gone but…"

"I would say to let them know mommy won't be living with them anymore but she still loves them.  Not much more than that at this age otherwise they'd get hurt or confused.  Also, let them know that mommy will let him know when…"

"I agree that it's not a good idea to bad mouth their mother at this point. After all, the kids are two and five. But about the truth. The truth is too harsh. Do you mean a version of the truth? Maybe something like, "your mommy can't…"
