I’ve been isolating in my home with my toddler( 2 year old) as she developed a cough over a week ago. The ‘14 day period’ will be up this weekend. Her father is looking to take her for 2 nights, however I’m very apprehensive sending her with this pandemic and the risks involved. As much as I need the break, I’m still scared. What do all you single mums do? Any advice would be appreciated. X
I haven’t an order but she goes every weekend. Didn’t go last because of her cough. I’m just nervous. Don’t know what the right thing to do is! He’s done nothing to help either I feel so annoyed on top of it all x
I’m a single dad and my daughters live with me and has supervised visits with her mum as per the advice of the social.and I had been sticking to them as advised by them but as this is happening now I contacted her mum and said until this is over their won’t be any contact but FaceTime as much as she’d like. She didn’t like that,so I put it to her like this you may not get the virus you might just carry it,is it worth giving it to your daughter and 50/50 chance she could die from it. just so you can get your time with her that’s quite selfish and she replied okay but I’d like to FaceTime as much as possible which I totally agreed with. At the end of the day yes this virus has a higher mortality rate with the elderly but I’m sure this virus doesn’t discriminate on how it kills so for my daughters safety I stopped the visits . Also if the government locks down completely which ever parent the child’s with at the time , the child will have to stay their even if their court papers involved as it will be illegal to leave your home and this could last 12 weeks aswell so that something to think about aswell

Yeah I get that. I’m scared of that too because I have her full time and the thought of the country going into lockdown and being without her would absolutely kill me. So my gut is telling me to keep her with me and use FaceTime. Does that sound amicable ? For the well being of everyone?
