My father is cheating on my mother

by John
(USA)

It's been awhile since I suspected that he's having an affair with someone. But now I'm sure I found evidence.


I don't know what to do, my feelings towards him has changed. Now I don't talk to him. I became arrogant with him. We have been like friends with my father but know I don't enjoy his company. He has been wondering lately why my behavior have been changing.

Mother didn't know about this thing either. She is a hard-working mother. By the time he was apart from us she raised us alone facing a lot of problems. I don't want her to be hurt.

I'm so confused and stressed because of this. Now it's affecting me so much.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
