A friend is in jail. A mutual friend found out that her children's dad is trying to get custody. Should we tell her? PLEASE READ DETAILS!
At this point we can only write to her. She is not sentenced yet. There's a chance she'll get probation; There's a chance she'll get more jail time. One of our mutual friends ran into her son and daughter's father and he claims that he is going to take the kids, that he's fighting for full custody. The question is: SHOULD WE TELL HER? Being in jail, there's nothing she can do to handle the situation.. the stress will just eat her alive!! So we're kind of thinking about not telling her. BUT we're also thinking---This is her children we're talking about.. She deserves to know about this! We don't want it to be a surprise to her! Your advice would be truly appreciated. Thank you!
