I am new to this so bare with me, I am writing due to been so upset how me and my ex which been split since my daughter was 4 and now 7, is not bothered to see her during the pandemic, however said he would come see her and doesn’t show and I am left to pick up the pieces. It upsets me to see her so upset she is, I never thought he would be a father like this and it has come to where now I am taking him to mediation.
Just give your kid something to do with you if the dad doesn’t show. Wait for a little while, and then go out. Distract her. You probably do something like this anyway, but I’ve found that having a plan b and, sometimes a plan c, always helps.
We don’t wait indefinitely for my kid’s dad to show. I’ll wait a while, (we have waited up to two hours a couple of times!) and then we go out. Anywhere!
Ps. I know it’s crap for your kid and for you because those visits give you a break.
