Hi there.

First time on here and Iíd really appreciate some insight/first hand experience info

my sonís father moved back to NZ in August 2019 and he has been with me full time (except school hols) since then. And then covid hit.... heís not seen dad since end of January but theyíre in regular contact via Skype.

Things have been tough through lockdown for both of us and my son has now decided he wants to leave at end of term 3 for NZ.

Before dad left, we had 50/50 care. My son canít stand his step mother and isnít the biggest fan of his half brothers (5&3yo). I think my son has forgotten this and has been encouraged by dad to decided to leave by being in his ear painting a rosy picture of how life would be other there.

Im of the belief that he should stay until the end of year 9 at least or until the end of year 10 along with nz visits

Has anyone been through this before? What was the outcome.? Any advice you can give? My son wonít talk about it and Iím at my wits end.

Thanks in adavance
