Oh this has choked me up. Thank you so much for sharing this, my children havent' verbalised those feelings completely yet but I know they lie just under the surface and wish they had someone in their lives who could be a safe space as you were and help all parties hear the impact. It's all too easy to get caught up in the adult nonsense and forget how their little hearts are experiencing things. Thank you so much for this reminder and the support.
