Should I tell my teenagers about husband's addiction?
My husband now has a serious cocaine addiction that makes him absent from family life but functioning. My children think he is stressed and in ill health. He has totally been absent during a rare times in our marriage that I needed support, he does cocaine in his garage, alone, all evening and into the night.
The kids already believe he is capable of suicide or death through ill health.
Should I tell them the truth so they can understand or do I protect them from the truth while they watch and are confused?
