Can anyone help me with how phone contact is organised after separation? I have 2 1/2 year olds who are very verbal and enjoy chatting to their dad. He is ringing twice a day at the moment 7am and 6pm. It's actually tricky to always be available at these times and it's tricky for him too. But if we don't have set times i feel like we are always waiting, or he is, and we miss calls etc. What do others do?? Are set times better? How much flexibility should i have ( he tends to be unreliable! ). It's getting very frustrating trying to make it work and is causing conflict.
