“Your fights will have a bad effect on your kid”
While it may be stressful when children find out that you’ve been cheating on their mother, there are a few things you can do to help convince them to keep everything under wraps.
“Give him a chocolate and tell him not to tell his mom”
Believe it or not, it’s more than possible to bribe your children into keeping quiet when they discover that you’ve been seeing someone else other than their mother. However, before you go off to buy the new XBOX One, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. Depending on how old your child is, bribing may only last for a short time. If you have younger children, you will have to be careful about what you tell them. Calling the other woman, “Daddy’s lady friend” has disaster written all over it, so try to avoid the friend title altogether. Instead, you should tell your kids that the other woman is someone who works at your job, and then immediately distract them with a gift. Do not tell them that if you buy them the gift that they can’t mention the other woman to your wife. This will almost always guarantee that your child will indeed mention her. Let the gift distract the child enough to forgot all about the other woman.
If you have older children, things can get a little bit tricky. How you handle things will depend on your relationship with your children and their relationship you’re your wife. There is a high possibility that you’ll have to dish out a lot more money to keep an older child quiet than you would with a younger one. You may also have to be willing to talk to your older child about the problems you are having with your wife to make yourself seem less guilty.
Promise to Stop
Sometimes children will overlook your cheating on their mother as long as they believe it was a mistake that you won’t let happen again. When you have to go this route, make sure when you apologize to your child, you seem completely sincere and remorseful about what you’ve done. You will need to be open to answering the questions that they may have for you if it means that they will keep quiet about the situation. Even if you don’t plan to stop seeing other women, make sure your child thinks you have learned from your mistakes and that you are done.
You will also have to let your child know that if your wife finds out, it could end up ruining the life all of you have. Make them aware that your family may split up and that everything fun you used to do together may quickly come to an end. This will help to make sure that your child is too worried to tell your wife about what happened.
It can be a terrifying ordeal when a child finds out that you’ve been cheating on their mother, but if you think quickly and carefully, you may be able to keep everything under control and avoid the risk of destroying your family life.
