I have recently become a single mum, my son is 18 months old. At the moment his father is seeing him as and when he asks to (averaging a few days a week). This is fine with me, although im wondering whether it will be in our son’s best interests to have set days each week when he sees him? As I know they thrive on routine , not that he’d know any different when it comes to days, mind! I just want what is best for our son but in terms of arrangements, I’m clueless!
If anyone could shed some light it would be greatly appreciated.
As long as your son is with someone he loves, all the time, it won’t matter much yet. Will your son go to nursery or childminder at 2? If you use regular childcare, you will have to set some kind of schedule to make it workable.
And If either of you acquire a new partner, you may need to fit in with other commitments, so you both need to enjoy what works now, but expect it to change in the future.
