I'd say he's spending time away from the team because of family issues
Which is vague enough, but not untrue.
I understand your reticence to be too forthcoming about what the heart of the matter is and I would not go there with my boys should the question come up (after all it's under investigation, presumption of innocence, etc), but I would not want to be untruthful or tell porkies. Kids remember this and don't thank you for it.
My 10yr old son keeps asking where he is and why he hasn’t been featured in any of the videos recently.
I don’t really want to go down the whole awkward route of telling him what ‘may’ be the cause for his absence. I think he’d frankly be stunned if he knew what the rumours were about :-(
Do I just say he has an unknown injury? Anyone else been asked by an inquisitive child?
