DD loves London but is working from her little room in a shared house currently as office is closed - life so different from normal and says she just wants to come home (to North Yorkshire) where she can have more space and will feel somehow safer with family. DH reluctantly (is it essential?) said he’ll fetch her tomorrow if she’s sure she wants to be here till the end of the lockdown. He will go there and back, no interactions with anyone but her. We all feel guilty already at going against the spirit of the guidance, but she’s taken care to walk everywhere for the past two weeks, is not ill and will self-isolate in her room here for seven days on arrival. It is probably not essential but feels natural for her to want to be here with us and of course we don’t really in our hearts want to say no. We almost wish there was a form to fill in for this mission!

What would you do?

I’d go and get her.

Go and get her.

I would go and get her. Some may disagree but this is for the long haul and if she can stay with you for that amount of time that is what she should do. After her period of isolation on arrival it will be normal that she is there with you n

I'd go and get her. I think most others would too, if they're honest with themselves.

I don't know, I don't think I would to be honest. If every single person went back to their family home it would be another way to spread the virus. I'd love to go and live with my mum or my sister and brother in law for a bit. The loneliness is driving me crazy. But I think it would be irresponsible. We've clearly been told that we can't mix with family members from other households.

I especially think it's a bad idea as it's such a long journey to have to make.

I don't think it's especially risky for just you to do it. It's if everyone did it that it would be a problem. Which is why there have to be blanket rules I guess. Nothing to stop them being broken in a genuine emergency. But this isn't one.

No question I'd go and get her

I would go and get her - I am in a similar situation and would like to go home but I have to stay in London due to work (even though I am working from home).

BeardedMum Sat 28-Mar-20 21:04:18

I would get her.

Landlubber2019 Sat 28-Mar-20 21:04:26

Yes I would bring her home, but I would make it clear that the isolation was essential and non negotiable. I would add that turning up now rather than 7 days ago was poor planning on her part and the risk that she had placed on you and your dh

I would go and get her now.

My 25 yr old lives round the corner with her boyfriend and I wish she had moved back in with us. I miss hugging her.

Bloody hell! Are you seriously asking whether you should get your own daughter?

BoogleMcGroogle Sat 28-Mar-20 21:05:36

Of course you should go add get her!

AlpineSnow Sat 28-Mar-20 21:07:33

I'd get her

eggandonion Sat 28-Mar-20 21:07:43

My 23 year old has been here for two weeks, since before lockdown in Ireland, she's got a house share in Dublin. I understand why you and she wants to be together.

Go and get her.

Feel like I've read this before...

happinessischocolate Sat 28-Mar-20 21:08:38

I'd go, the company I work for has shut for 3 months, she's going to be there for a long time if you don't go get her now

starrynight19 Sat 28-Mar-20 21:11:17

Yes I would get her
