Your Question

Hi there and welcome to Ask Alex. 
Thanks for reaching out with your question; it sounds like there’s a lot going on for you at the moment. You’re asking what you can do if your mam is moving far away from your dad.
This sounds like it could be quite a confusing and anxious time for you. How are you feeling?  Moving house can leave us with a mixture of feelings—it can be daunting, overwhelming, but also positive and exciting.  It sounds like you’re concerned about moving far away from your dad. Have you been able to speak to either your mam or dad about this and how it’s making you feel? Sharing our worries can be really helpful, although we understand that this can also feel like a scary thing to do!
Perhaps you could write down how you’re feeling or practice what you could say? Have you talked to anyone else about your concerns? You could speak to another adult you trust, such as a family member, youth worker, or a sports coach. They could also support you when you speak with your parents. 
You can find some advice and information here where there are articles about how to speak to your parents, managing stress at home, etc.
