    My ex has accused me of trying to stop our children from seeing their extended family (aunts and uncles) because I’ve asked if they can try to social distance / remain in the garden. This is what we do when we see my side of the family or friends, as I thought this was the rule! Obviously they don’t social distance from their dad, or their grandma who he lives with, but am I wrong to ask adults from other households to keep a distance?

    Our children love their aunts (on dad’s side) and would love to see them, and I’d never ever try to stop that… I’d just prefer they kept a distance. The children are good about keeping a distance from my family (age 7 and nearly 5) and I think they’ll wonder why they have to keep distance from my family if their Dad’s family don’t bother.

    I know everyone is different but I’m genuinely interested to know if people think I’m wrong for  asking this.

    Some people are uneducated and totally ignorant when it comes to covid and social distancing. You just have to look at the news to see how packed the beaches are and people are just carrying on like usual. In shops people won’t wear masks or push past you.

    We have met people in the garden. Talked outside homes, chatted in the park. Wheln my child goes to the child minder I wait outside her home. Obviously your ex is uneducated because I don’t know of anyone who is seeing relatives or friends within the home!!
