My stepson just turned 7. My husband was granted custody because the mother was declared unfit due to her drug abuse. She was granted supervised visits until she can pass two consecutive drug tests. Over the last year and a half, her visits have become few and far between. My husband and I think it would be a good idea for “Tony” to start seeing a therapist again. He doesn’t talk about his mother often, and I’m worried he may be bottling up a lot of his feelings. Tony is starting to ask more questions about his mom — like why he can’t stay the night with her, why he can’t live with her, and why he hasn’t seen her much lately. I try not to say anything negative about her. Is it time to explain the situation to him? He is still so young, and I don’t know how to explain things in a way he would understand. If you were me, what would you do? LivinUnleashed Twitter: @LivinUnleashed Facebook: LivinUnleashed Webs: Email: [email protected] Soundcloud:
