“Leave! I’ll raise my children without you. Go cheat freely‚ we are better off without you anyway‚” a woman boldly uttered to the father of her children – in the presence of the kids.
The father responded furiously: “I want nothing to do with you anyway. I don’t love you anymore‚ so I’ll come visit my children when I can.”
A changing moment for the kids. Knowing their father is a cheater‚ their father is not the role model they thought he is‚ their father does not love and value their mother and‚ in return‚ the mother is chasing their father away‚ the parents have given up on each other. What a brutal experience for them.
The children may not know the reasons that resulted in their mother uttering those words but to hear the possibility of being separated from one of their parents is certainly a life-changing moment.
All of a sudden‚ you are raising angry children‚ bitter children‚ unhappy children‚ violent children‚ broken children and cold-hearted children.
