My mum has saucy messages on her phone from her 'friends with benefits' lover — should I tell my stepdad?

I’m a 15-year-old boy and Mum had some problems with the settings in her phone so asked me to look at it. This message came up.

I think she met him when she was away with my auntie in Corfu.

My mum and stepdad have just celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary.

He’s 40 and my mum is 38.

I get along well with my stepfather and now I’m worried she’s cheating. Should I tell him?

DEIDRE SAYS: Best not. I understand how distressing this is but rushing straight to your stepdad could cause no end of problems.

It’s hard to judge other people’s relationships from the outside. Tell your mum what you accidentally saw. Explain you’re upset and that you hope she’s going to stop seeing this man.

This wake-up call may be enough for her to realise she must.
