Daisyboo, I agree with indie on this. Children see more than you think, and a little openness with them could go a long way toward relieving the anxiety they're likely feeling. Above all, they need to know it is not about them. If you don't tell them that much, they may assume too much, and they may be terribly afraid.

Again, you don't have to reveal details, just let them know that you love them, and that the trouble lies elsewhere.
