DEAR DEIDRE: I RECKON my dad is gay after I found birthday and Valentine’s Day cards to him from another man.
I also found expensive toiletries and photos of my dad with some guy.
My parents split up six years ago when my mum found a birthday card from an anonymous person saying how much the writer loved him.
They broke up when she confronted him. I sometimes stay with my dad and after finding make-up in his bathroom I assumed he had a girlfriend.
But then I discovered these cards. I’m a 15-year-old boy. I’ve been sitting crying in my room whenever I’m alone.
I don’t know how to tell Mum. I feel like I hate my dad because he caused the breakdown of their marriage.

DEIDRE SAYS: Don’t jump to conclusions. You don’t have the inside track on your parents’ private lives and why they split up.
It is easy to blame the breakdown of a marriage on one person. But the truth is always much less black and white.
Tell your dad what you found and ask him to explain.
He has split with your mum now so can see whoever he likes, male or female.
