    Hi I don’t live with my kids but I see them regularly and have to balance looking after my 2 children and helping the mother to my children out cause she has a disability I have just dropped out of uni to help more with my children and their mum and feel like I want to go back to uni but need to be here for kids and kids mum I feel like what I want becomes third place too in a way. I feel very guilty about wanting my own life. Like a job and sgoing back into study and very stuck.

    Yep – I have mine 50 /50, and I’m a Dad to four kids. I also have an ex that is being difficult and causing problems so I feel your pain..  Kids are hard work, but they’re worth every second of it 🙂  Robbie, have you considered something like an Open University degree that allows you to do it remotely in your spare time?

    Hi Robbie , yes I feel guilt too because I want to study too, because I began uni but it did not fit in with my responsiblities with my kids so I deferred but then had no choice but to leave, Carlos I had same problem with my ex in the beginning , but I found out that no matter what ur ex says about you or does it can  only helps you to ignore it  to be the better person 😉 because I learnt the hard way
