My eldest son is from a previous relationship. We have a fantastic relationship with his dad, they generally spend every second weekend together, and sometimes he will help out taking him to his sports training which he does up to 3 nights a week and also on weekends. This week he will be moving house, 6 hours away from us. We are understandably upset for my son. He currently lives with me, my husband and his two younger brothers. He will go from seeing his dad every fortnight to only once a month. His dad has to move due to work commitments. My son so far is assuring us that he is ok, but I’m really worried about him and how much he is going to miss his dad.
I guess my question is, has anyone been in this situation? Firstly I would like advice on how to help my son through the changes and make it as easy as possible for him. And secondly of course, what strategies can I take to make sure our co parenting relationship stays as great as it is currently.
