    I am supposed to be working, but just can not think of work right now.  My wife has now said she wants me out of the family home as soon as possible and does not want me staying in the local vicinity as it will be upsetting for the children.  She originally told me that children are resilient and now seems to have changed her mind.  I know it is more about her wanting that space and separation and not having to think about seeing me on the street or going into the local COOP.

    I want to do what’s best for the children and don’t want to be dictated by my wife into doing something I will regret.  Is it wrong for me to want to stay local so I am near to their school and their friends.

    You need to be as close as possible so you can do drop-off and collect from school and have them to stay ovet. Don’t forget you are equal parents.

    The children come first and their needs are the priority. Bumping into each other in the supermarket is just part of it, I guess. I am currently not seeing my kids and there is little communication between me and my ex. I sometimes wonder how she will cope when we have to discuss who stays where  when, birthdays, special occasions,  decisions that need making etc.

    Have you thought about mediation?

    I have not thought about mediation yet.  There doesn’t appear to be anything to rent in my local area.  I have been looking on RightMove….Are there any other sites I could be looking at?

    My wife has her parents who are quite local and would most likely help out when needed, so she is okay.  Whereas I am stuck and it would be down to me,  without any support.
