Dilemma with Dad

Monica - posted on 09/03/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have been with my partner for several years has been a bit rocky but stuck in there. My daughter is now one and he has turned out to be a great dad, however we disagree on many things and agree a lot. we live in an ok area but not great for kids. However we have another property in a very nice area, i want my daughter to grow up in the good area where the schools are great my partner will not move because is mom is three doors away and he has lived there all his life also he works with his familys business. We are now living separate and i drive over every weekend. Is it more inportant that we live in the not so nice area where i feel unhappy because there nothing to offer my daughter but she has her dad, or should i stay in the better area where i think she will excel and i feel happier. However i do miss the support and my partner at times i feel im being selfish im i a real dilemma also i worry the constant driving over is not giving her a good routine.. Any advice out there or anyone thats been in a similar situation

Sounds like a tough situation. But really, kids can thrive anywhere as long as they have the love and support of their parents. ♥ Are you sure there is "nothing" to offer in the area where her dad is? A good relationship with your partner would be worth putting up with the not so good location. OR maybe some space would be good for a little while? Clueless here too..... lol ♥ Hope there is a compromise somewhere in it all. ♥
