They need a lot more than that.

You are teaching them to make choices regardless of the cost to others .

I disagree.

All I hear is me,me,me.
Yes. You would.

Yes. But they know me. So that is par for the course.

I encourage you to take your children to see a therapist. Let that therapist get to know them and you and then pose this question to the therapist. After having gotten to know them and understand their relationship to you and their Father, that therapist can make an informed opinion on what you are proposing.

If you are getting the answers you want from people who know you, why on earth did you come here?

Why do you think?
Refer to my original post.

I was wanting anyone's experiences............ I have one family member that has moved away and let their father care for her children. I wanted other's opinions and experiences.

You are assuming that they are going to be left with their father.

I think you are NOT getting the answers you want from the people you know, so you are branching out, trying desperately to find some justification for what you are thinking of doing.

You can think what you want. You obviously haven't heard anything else I've posted.

That's okay.

Default Go for it!

Just talk to the right people..........your kids! They're the only ones that count. After giving them time to adjust to the circumstances they'll probably give you their blessings.
The truth in small doses.........a little at a time
