We all do the best we can and we have to give others the benefit of the doubt that they are doing the best they can. Some people's best is better than others but what is important is all of us are doing our best. This is particularly true of parents. Even alcholics or drug addicts love their children and are doing the best they can to be good parents. So, there is no lie or harm in telling the children in this article that their father loves them. This is surely true. One half of their make up is from their father and so at least some of their self worth comes from knowing that he loves them. By confirming his love by their mother is beneficial to them.
That said, if there is danger of their being harmed, she would have to be diligent in protecting them.
