Re: when and how to tell my teen kids
      06/13/11 12:37 AM

This is a tough situation, here is my story and I donít know if it is the right or wrong way to deal with the situation, it is what it is. My little brother told me a few years ago and asked me not to say anything to anyone else in the family. It was hard, because I worried about him and couldn't share that concern. His behavior started getting very erratic, he was being a total ass and began to alienate those who were closest to him. I ended up confiding in my sister, so she could understand what was going on with him. It was extremely hard on her; she wanted to talk to him but didnít want to pry into his life. We kept it between us, until he ended up in the hospital so sick we had to call the rest of the family in, all anyone cared about was getting him healthy. We all felt so relieved to be able to discuss it openly and he is able to talk to us now. That is my experience, I donít know if there is a right way? People make mistakes, no one is perfect. If you choose to tell your kids they are old enough to understand, it will not be easy, they will be hurt and scared but, they will always love you.
