What is the longest time period where you were separated from DH? What was it for?

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

Maybe 3 or 4 days. It was a long time ago when Austin was a baby and I was visiting family but DH had to work.

A few days. It was for me to visit family out of state.

Though with what we are currently planning could require us living apart for several months. But with hopefully being able to see each other at least bi-weekly. Since Dd would be living primarily with me.

ETA: Hope you get to see Dh sooner!!!

3.5 months. We were long distance, so we were apart a lot, but the longest stretch was 3.5 months. It was miserable and we STILL get emotional when he travels for week because it gives us crazy long distance flash backs (even if he's only traveling for like, two days).
