Daughters dad is in jail, do I tell her?

I’m wondering if I should be upfront with my daughter(10) and have a discussion about her dad being in jail, he went just recently but is looking at 3 years. She’s had alot of problems at her dad’s since we split 8 years ago. I don’t want to lie to my daughter, but I also don’t know if I want to tell her due to my own selfish reasons or if telling her truely is what’s best, advice please!

Personally it will be best coming from you. At the age of 10 she may well find out via someone else if you don’t tell her. Unfortunately we live in a world where everything is talked about on social media and she may hear it from a friend’s older sibling and then may wonder why u never told her.
