She panicked my kids with phony report of divorce

Dear Amy: I not too long ago discovered out from my faculty-aged little ones that when they ended up significantly more youthful (perhaps 8 or 9), they ended up expending the weekend with my sister-in-legislation and for some explanation she explained to them their parents (us) were obtaining a divorce and if they needed to chat to someone about it, they could contact her.

We weren’t finding a divorce and I have no concept the place she got this strategy, but it describes why my kids had been hysterical any time my spouse and I experienced a disagreement throughout their childhoods.

We assumed it was simply because most of their pals experienced divorced dad and mom, but now we know in different ways.

I’m offended that she induced my children this kind of discomfort and anxiousness.

I know she wasn’t accomplishing it maliciously, but  she was sticking her nose into an individual else’s business enterprise. And it was not even correct.

Do I provide this up to her or continue to preserve her at a length (as I have considering the fact that I observed this all out)?
