|It really shouldn't be up to him to be the conduit of news between the two houses, which will just be increasingly stressful for him as he gets older. I know that when my stepdaughters' mother puts the responsibility on them to either withhold specific information from their dad (I know that's not what you're doing here, of course) or to be the one to pass it along when really she should tell him, it's very hard on them|
