I have a 2 year old child and am living alone with her. I am also in the “vulnerable” catergory.
In the space of one week, she has lost all contact with her nursery friends and workers, her childminder and her father (who for other reasons is not seeing her ATM).
I am doing FaceTime with my parents every morning but she has displayed signs of confusion, anxiousness and upset that everyone seems to have “disappeared”.
I know this is likely to continue for some time and I am anxious about the effect on her as she is too young to understand what is going on but old enough to notice the sudden change.
I wondered if anyone is experiencing a similar situation and your thoughts on it?
