‘My dad’s having an affair’

I found out about a month ago that my dad was having an affair. I borrowed his mobile phone to send a text message and while I was using it I saw some pictures of him with another woman and read messages that she’d sent him.

I thought I’d keep it to myself because I didn’t want anyone to get upset or hurt, but the other night I was out with an old friend of my mum’s and after a few drinks, I blurted it out.

She reminded me the next morning about what I’d told her and she revealed that she already knew and its been going on for about a year.

I want to tell my mum but I think my family would all hate me. I think my mum deserves to know but I don’t want my family to fall apart. What should I do ? It’s making me really angry at my dad.
