Having the Difficult Conversation...

In the past few weeks, the NFO and I were privy to some sad news from friends.

One has breast cancer.
Another is getting divorced.

The challenge facing us (since our kids would eventually hear about them) was: how to explain these situations.

It wasn't easy, but I think we did an admirable job. Our kids were involved and asked questions.

I don't know if they will "put it all together" when they find out the actual situations or not, but I think the lesson for us (again) was: don't shy away from the tough conversations; better to have them upfront.

I would imagine that this is just one of may more.
