To think it's not my responsibility to do all the running around

So that my children can have contact with their father? They are 15 and 13. We separated when they were 5 and 3 and since then I have had to drop them off at his house and pick them up every time it's his weekend to see them. He does not drive (he's approaching 40)

One of our children is now in residential school and I have to take him with me when I go to visit her otherwise he doesn't go.

He is now engaged to be married next year and the dropping off of my 13 year old is now done by his fiancé. I have started saying no to picking dd up all the time and dropping her off because I don't feel I should have to do this all the time. And he is not hard up - he has a good job.

AIBU to think he should be able to take responsibility for transport to see his own children?

I should have posted in lone parents really - I wonder how others do things

Tell him you are handing over the job to his new chauffeur. .

If he is in a good job he has ready cash - so cabs are not an unreasonable expectation - he gets himself to work so he should sort himself out.

Having said that can 13yr old not get themselves there?

She could - its about half an hour walk there / back. Sometimes she does walk part of the way there and meet him. Our disabled dd is a different matter because she now lives in another town.
