Need Help: Explaining reason of divorce to my 5 year old son
I am a female Muslim and divorced with mutual consent when my son was 2 year old. Reason being, we never had sound relation which broke when he was not supportive and not ready to handle child responsibilities.
Now he is 5 and I would like to share him the reason for divorce. I know he is very small to understand but i want to satisfy his curiosity, slowly and gradually that why his dad is not staying with him. He is in Sr. KG and many times asked to explain my family. I understand that he has to face such situations when he grows up and mingles with school mates.
Therefore, I would like to ask in what way and what I should explain to my child so there is no issues related to his mental health and he remains happy. Also I would not like to say negative things about his dad.
Thanks a lot.
