I am currently going through a breakup, the relationship lasted 3 years we have two kids one is my step daughter aged 5 and my baby who is 20 months old.
We are getting on ok, I am struggling with the breakup, I feel anxious about how we can co parent when I am used to seeing the kids at the weekends and one evening a week.
I am worried about how often I will get to see the kids. I miss them loads when I don't see them for more than a few days and now It looks like I might only get to see them every other weekend when my older kid goes back to school in Sept.
I want to be as involved as possible but I am over 40 miles away from them now and an 80 mile round trip is unfeasible for them.
Do I just have to accept I will see the kids way less?
I am thinking I will relocate to be closer to the kids but this is going to take time.
