Is anybody separated from their children due to the covid19 lockdown or experienced being separated from them before. My children are nine years old and 18 months old. while I can have contact with my nine-year-old daughter through facetime, it’s virtually impossible to connect with my baby boy this way. I wondered how other people were coping? Is anybody separated from their children due to the covid19 lockdown or experienced being separated from them before.

Reading this. My heart breaks for you. I don’t have any advice but I’m sorry you are dealing with this
My fiance is dealing with this with his 11yo who is currently quarantined at her moms. His heart is breaking not being able to physically be there for her. Not being able to hug her. It sucks not being able to help
My husband and bonus kids are quarantined in 2 different states currently. its definitely a struggle. Even worse when the other parent wont answer the phone so we can check on the kids.
My husband works out of town and is always chatting with our 18 month old through FaceTime. If there is a will, there is a way!
My daughters father has been separated but not because he has it or we have it but bc he lives in another state
Yes. My husband and I are both “essential” employees. My 6 year old and 20 month old are 6 hours away with grandma. We face time morning and night but the littlest doesn’t respond to FaceTime like my 6 year old. Its heart breaking. But, they are safer there than with us
My kids are with me, my parents 2.5 hrs away, in-laws 4 hrs away. It sucks we call a lot, facetime/snapchat/Facebook frequently as well. It’s tough but we will get through it.
It’s hard with grown children too. I haven’t seen my daughter and grandbaby. I just want them to be safe.
My 18 month old FaceTimes with my husband when he’s away for work. Been doing it for awhile. He interacts and gets so excited. He’ll hand me my phone and yell “daddy”. He gets mad if it’s just a phone call. Thankfully my husband is home right now and teleworking.
Both my sons (age 5 and 2) are at their grandparents house and they won’t let us see them until the virus situation gets better. My heart goes out to all the parents who can’t be with their kids…
Quit whining and adjust. I was in the military for 20 years and didn’t see mine for sometimes a year at a time. There was no Skype or any of that. This will be over soon.
I’m so sorry. I hope this ends soon or at least gets to a point you can be with your babies. Maybe if you read a story or act really goofy the little one will stay focused on the screen with you. I know nothing is the same as being able to hold them but getting a giggle may help your heart.
I’m a military spouse and Daddy is currently deployed. I can assure you kiddos of all ages are resilient! It doesn’t matter if my husband gone a couple of days or weeks or months- they get right back to where they left off, sometimes it might take a couple of days but it goes back to normal.
Depending on child’s age and interest maybe playing a video game online with them on PlayStation/Xbox live with the headset and mic . My son has been playing with his school friends he’s misses so much !! #socialdistancing
I made the decision to leave my children with their grandma and grandpa. It is the safest option for all four of them. My husband and I have been deemed essential employees and I can’t be certain that I’m not coming in contact with someone who is sick. Today is my son’s birthday. My husband and I sat out side and had lunch with them and sang Happy birthday to him. It hurt not to be able to give my children love but I can not risk harm to any of them.
As of now my kids are with me, but with their daycare closed down, they will be with my mom throughout the week (starting tonight) so I can still go to work since I’m an essential employee! I’ll only get to spend 1 night with them (Saturday to Sunday) then drop them back off with my mom… only until their daycare opens back up which I hope is soon. Iv never been away from my kids for more then a couple days so this is gonna be so so hard!
How is everyone getting along please?
