    Just looking for some reassurance really from others in the same situation.

    My child hasn’t seen his dad since lockdown started due to him still working and both of us agreeing that I would have him full time for the time being.

    His dad stopped work all together a few weeks ago and is staying with his partner with 3 other children.  2 of these children goto their dads house so stay over a few nights a week and I think this has been the arrangement during lockdown.

    We’ve been doing lots of phone calls and FaceTime etc but my child is starting to really miss his dad and the other children over their and keeps asking if he can go over.

    Its only me and him here so I think seeing other children and his dad would be good for him so have arranged to restart sleepovers at dads.

    I can’t help but feel anxious about this though as I’m being extra careful at the moment with hand washing and watching what we touch when on walks etc.  At dads I obviously can’t do this and my anxiety is making me want to delay the visit.

    I know this is unreasonable and not fair on dad or my child so just looking for a bit of reassurance that sending him to dads is doing the right thing.

    If both you and your child are healthy, then I think you just need to take a deep breath and let him go to his dad’s.
    Life has to go on.
