My Dad is leaving my Mom for another woman. - January 8th 2009, 09:24 PM

My parents are getting a divorce because my dad has been having an affair with someone and their marriage has been awful for years. She's extremely hurt right now, and rightfully so.... However, I'm having such a hard time because i'm the only child still in the house and I have to be with her and take care of her. She's getting worse everyday, crying more often, yelling about my dad and I think she's slipping deeper and deeper into depression. She's looking into therapy... but I just don't know what to do. I'm too young to know what to say or do and I can't handle this on my own but i live with her and while there are people around sometimes to help... it's like at the end of the day it's just me. What can I do to help her?

It's so difficult for a family to go through a divorce. All you can really do is be there for support. She's going through a rough time and she basically just needs you to be there and to let her know that you care about her. When a man leaves a woman, especially for another woman, most women would tend to feel like they're not good enough for anyone or that they were at fault. Just try to remind her that you're still there for her and you're not going anywhere. I don't really know what else to say other than I'm so sorry that this is happening to your family. Just hang in there and be strong for your mother. I'm sure she'll appreciate simply having you there with her.

I really hope that things get better for you and, again, I'm so sorry to hear about this. If you ever need to talk, PM me, okay?

hey there...

i've a few words. one is that everyone faces tough times and your mom is going through one right now. The most important thing is to always be there for her and support her no matter what happens that alone will brighten up her day a lot. Besides that, it could be possible that she re-connects with her old friends and have chats.

Most of all, i'm proud of you for thinking and trying to help your mom... thats a really sweet thing to dooo . your mom is lucky to have someone like you around! kudos to you

maybe she could find someone new in her life . Someone more reliable to take care of the family and support the family thats really the most important thing right now.

Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!
