My husband and I divorced and I was away from my son, on and off, for about five months. He will be 1-year-old this month, and my husband and I are back together. I was wondering if you think my separation from my son will affect him.
If your husband was nurturing and loving to your son during your absence, he should be okay. I’m glad to hear that you and your husband are back together. It’s very important that you do not repeat this event. A second experience like that could cause your son some problems.
