In an open and honest post to her fans, Kathryn shared that she’s been going through a really emotional time lately without her kids.

Wanting to try to comfort others who are possibly going through the same situation, she shared some of her experiences and some of her tips.

The Southern Charm personality began on Instagram: “There will be a lot more difficult times than good times when you are without your kids. 

“It’s normal. It’s normal if it’s only difficult at first. 

“It’s going to be that way, it’s going to be hard…you gotta accept that’s just the way it is and pivot. Just like everything else in parenting.”

She continued: “I like to visualize a tunnel and the light at the end being my children. 

“Focus on the light even if it seems dim at first. Kids are resilient and the bigger picture is not as bad as the smaller picture feels.”

Of what else has helped to keep her emotionally and physically busy, Kathryn added: “I started doing little projects like setting up Kensie’s dolls for her and telling them they had been playing while she was gone, moving the Pokemon action figures and saying they were battling while they were gone! 

“I also get through with a lot of DIY projects or prep for them and doing their Lego sets LOL.”

Her final tip to followers was to take a bunch of videos and photos of their kids because they’re going to want to look at them all the time when the little ones aren’t around.

Earlier this week, Kathryn was all smiles as she got to spend time with her kids and enjoy a day at the aquarium together.

She shared a series of snaps of her with her children, Kensington and Saint.

In one, the reality star posed with Saint holding a cutout fish as well as with his head in a tarantula photo stand-in.

Kathryn captioned the pics: “The smiles of children are the best kind there are ☺️ #aquariumadventure & moms search for #hunkydory #rhobh #crocgame.”

A few weeks ago, the mother-of-two slammed the “family court system” as “exhausting” after her ex Thomas won full custody over their kids.

The Sun previously revealed Kathryn temporarily lost custody of their two children, as she now has supervised visitation every other weekend. 

A source claimed to The Sun: “She has supervised visitation during the day Saturday and Sunday every other weekend.”

The insider continued that Thomas plans to move to Aiken with the children this summer, as he proposed his plan to the judge when requesting full custody. 

Kathryn recently took to her Instagram stories to share a scathing post directed at the “family court system.”

“It is exhausting to constantly defend yourself from someone who is trying to change reality – it can even make you question what you know happened, or what is true,” the post began.

“It can be exhausting to live two lives: one for your children and for the world (everything is fine), and the other where you are beaten down by the family court system.

“We see you and we stand with you. You are not alone,” the message finished.
