Isolation in 2 households
27 May 2020 at 11:14 pm #40444
I have 3 sons with my ex.He has a new son who is 2 and a half with his new wife.
My kids are 14,16 and 21! We’ve been sharing walks and last weekend my boys stayed over at their dads house. Today their dad has told us his toddler is going back to nursery. My feeling is we need to distance ourselves again. I am due to go back to work in a school. It feels like too much too soon. Both changes have made my 21 year old and his gf stop seeing each other to protect her family. Any thoughts? I am a single mum in confusion!28 May 2020 at 7:18 am #40445
Hello Gru if you look at the news you will see that things are moving rather quickly now , so that we get back to normal..the curve for covid has flattened and people are getting back to normal .
My child is still continuing to go school an I have never stopped working . Our food gets delivered each week. Yesterday we went for a walk in the park. The last time we were there was in February. I don’t think you have anything to worry about as schools and nurseries are very safe !28 May 2020 at 7:18 am #40446
You know the stats that children and teens, without pre-existing conditions are very very unlikely to become ill.
Is your concern for yourself, your ex, his wife or someone else? Is there someone with asthma etc in the wider family?
lockdown is easing, but the virus hasn’t gone away, we all have to deal with risk in our individual circumstances.
Track & trace starts today. You could ask whether your extended family and the nursery teachers will be using it. That might be a place to start. Encourage your children to get the app. Tell your ex you are worried and see what else he can suggest.28 May 2020 at 10:00 am #40453
Thanks for your reply.
One of my kids is asthmatic. I work with vulnerable children and I’m home alone with my kids. I’m glad we finally have a system in place, I have no faith in our leadership so far. I also have a mistrust of my ex’s choices!
I needed to hear from someone getting in with their lives successfully.

It’s good to hear from you. I need accurate supportive information at the moment!

My son who is year 7 will be going back to school as soon as he can. He’s missing it very much, and neither of us has any underlying conditions, so slightly different circumstances. Our headmaster has been great, releasing a video of the measures that will be in place in school, the distancing, the cleaning regime, lunch process, pick up & drop off. He’s the one who has given me confidence, being so thorough.28 May 2020 at 1:16 pm #40461
I have a medical condition and have have severe lung scarring from TB.. the government.said I should isolate until June 20 .
I made up my mind that I..not going to live in fear or let anyone tell me what to do ..no one helps me with my bills so rather than live in fear and think omg I have no.one to.look after my child I continued to work and still send child to school .my sister got her food delivered and she bought extra food for us in march .
We now have supplies coming in from wonderful Tesco and could share with people who couldn’t get items . I wrote to Tesco and it took 5 weeks for them to reply & they were really sympathetic. Sainsbury’s wouldn’t help me nor Asda . You would think I was asking for free grub,! The schools are fine and I can complain .my child is so happy and well cared for !
