Homesickness?

My oldest child is veery close to my side of the family, but they all live in other states. My child almost always has a hard time leaving them and has started to talk about running away there “jokingly” although I do not see my daughter running away I truly believe she would rather be with them than with us. Moving is not an option and she is generally happy until she talks to them . Please help

    We lived several hours away from family a few years back. I did ‘share’ my kids with their grandmas during the summer and school breaks...not the whole time just a bit. They of course was glad to go, but they were also glad to come back home to me! I think a couple wks away made them appreciate home a little more.
