I realize this was posted in the summer but I had to say...I 100% disagree that a child needs to know that their mother or father had an affair. Children have enough to deal with in their lives, they don't need to know their parent was unfaithful to their other parent! There are far better ways to be a BIG WINNER than to confess something of this magnitude to a child. Children will be happy, they are reslilent, but again to reveal something like this to them is just wrong, imo.

If we are talking about an older teenager and that teen is asking questions perhaps then and only then but younger than that, NO WAY!

just me
