My child is moving to a different area. I would, of course, prefer that she stay here although we have never been very close. I'm very concerned about my grandchild moving with her, tho the child is a young adult. Trying to adjust to possibly losing contact with them. It is likely they will rarely come here, and we will not be able to travel there. Any good ideas about how to keep the awkwardness from growing would be appreciated.
Do you mind me asking why you feel you are not very close? How far are they moving? You can obviously use all sorts of modern communication but I found that that having to use it so much due to Covid it became quite frustrating. Nothing like an ‘old fashioned’ phone call.
