    Totally agree, sometimes just doing your best is all you can do! We have had a discussion tonight which has been positive, glad we’re taking positive steps in the right direction and sorting it between ourselves. Thank you for taking the time to reply! All the best x

    Thank you for your reply, I think you are probably right! I hadn’t looked at it that way and always thought I was putting her best interests first however, I do think it’s unfair. Like I’ve said before, I love being a parent but I do find it difficult that when we separated everything was put instantly on me. Also yes I think you are right about studying etc, maybe it’s my priorities that aren’t straight! It’s so difficult, you always feel as a parent you are doing the right thing, that’s why I wanted to join this as it’s nice sometimes to get an outsides perspective! The shared calendar is a brilliant idea, I shall give that a try. I just would like something a little more concrete, she gets really disappointed when she says can I see daddy today and I say I will give him a call and he doesn’t answer or reply over the next few days and she is asking me daily when she’s going to see him, it’s difficult to give her an answer. He sometimes just falls off the radar for a while! It’s hard for me to understand let alone 6 year old.

    Again, thank you for your reply I think I needed to vent more than anything!

    Yeah, I’ve tried really hard to keep the relationship there for a long time but it is getting to the stage where it is few and far between visits. I have asked him to put set days in place, mainly for her so she knows when she’s going but he said he can’t due to shifts at work, I find it very hard to believe he can’t say I can’t work this day to be able to see his daughter. I’d be happy even if it was every other weekend. I have found a parenting plan so I am going to try that as a first step. Thank you so much for your reply.
