Jennifer Garner Refuses To Sugarcoat Her Divorce From Ben Affleck — Is Your Parenting Style Similar Or Different?

Jennifer Garner is being honest with her kids about her breakup with Ben Affleck!

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner may be breaking up, but they still share the same number one priority: their children.

Since announcing their sad split last week, the two have made it pretty clear that this kids come first.

They took a family trip to the Bahamas around the time the news broke, in an effort to shield Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel from the paparazzi and the tabloids.

They have also decided to continue living on the same LA property together, so they could co-parent their three little ones.

When it comes to actually telling her children about what’s really going on between momma and daddy, one of Jen’s long-time friends says the 43-year-old is being really open with them:

“She’s such a good mom and she’s honest with them ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ she’s not sugarcoating this.”

While their oldest kid is only nine, sources say the actress hopes her openness helps them understand what exactly is going on between her and the 42-year-old:

“They will do whatever is needed so their children are happy and well-adjusted.”

Since little Samuel is only three, it’s safe to say that he probably won’t get it for a while, but we applaud Jen’s parenting strategy.

In this case, honesty really is the best policy!
