  I am so scared about tomorrow.I am handling things better,now that I am on anti-depressant.Also I start therapy Tuesday.But tomorrow we take my 13 year old back to therapy.See he already has anxiety attacks,and borders on depression,from getting picked on at school.His strength was his family.In case you have'nt read my other threads- sad my husband wants to leave confused and we have to ask my sons  therapist how we should tell him.I am so scared...I am being strong for him...

One thing you should continue to do is put him through counseling! I am 16 and am trying to find a good counselor again! Oh, bye the way tell your son to just hang in there, because if he lets the bullies distract him from school, it will cause more pain in the future! cool

I totally agree with Lyn. Divorce is so hard on kids,I think it is harder on teenagers than anyone. Their lives are so extreme right now anyway.
Be careful with the bully situation,we have all read so many horror stories about that.
My son had a situation one year,and I threatened to change schools if it did not get better.
Then it came down to a fight between the bullies and my son,which got all of the parents in the same room.
After the anger boiled down between all of us we were finally able to come to an understanding (their son was a mean little brat,and they needed to get control of him,that was MY understanding!!!).
Good luck to you!

 Thanks guys,this really helped.My sons therapy today went okay.But she wants to add more visits.She says he's really going to be upset over the breakup,and that my husband should be the one to tell him.As he is the one that wants to leave,not me.If he could wait until he got thru middle school age,as it is hardest.I said it will never happen and she said just help him all I can...
