The hidden cost of separation
25th May 2017
The children worry me. Dylan’s been waking up most nights crying about all sorts of things, so he’s been sleeping with me. Lottie is so quiet and pale. She’s stopped asking questions and seems withdrawn. She wants to cuddle all of the time but doesn’t want to talk about anything other than her day at school. I know she’s processing everything and needs reassurance. I am giving her the space and love to do this but it makes me so sad to see her. Dylan’s nightmares worry me too – he’s so little but he’s obviously picked up on the atmosphere in the house.
I want to snuggle them both up and make it better for them.
