Your daughter will also need your time and attention with regard to the impact of her brother's behaviour

Talk to your GP about managing their symptoms at home

It may be helpful for you and his dad to have a shared explanation, which you can both agree on

Adapting and accommodating to parents separating is a process that may need ongoing emotional support for children






Meet-ups provide a good opportunity for children to play freely but it’s crucial parents don’t overload themselves

To my mind, your son's happiness in school would be of most importance
