A Personal Decision - By 'Toyah'

Dad's prison sentence kept a secret

Hi, I would like to respond to, Anonymous, please. ( above link ) I was so sad reading your story.
I think it is a personal choice for every parent whether they decide to tell their child mum or dad is in prison. But I do agree that the past has a way of rearing its ugly head too. I did tell my son that his dad had gone working away, but the truth slipped out by someone else, and I wish I'd have been upfront with him about it. It's such a personal decision and a very difficult one too. I wish you well, Anonymous. God bless.
