This means no dropping the kids off at grandma’s house when it is your weekend with them."This speaks volumes to the kids about your lack of importance and focus on them," Fisher says.
It can be tricky, since sometimes if the mom isn’t dating yet, she may try to discredit your dating in front of the kids.The kids may also struggle with either or both parents’ new significant others.“They may feel they’re betraying their mothers,” says Condrell, “and may keep them from getting close to new parents.” Rule #9: Make introductions cautiously This needs to be an extremely low-key, short meeting. Instead, have her come to your house, and set a time limit. Add the prospect of dating to the equation, and you’ve got quite a challenge.But regardless how your circumstance arose, you deserve to date.Rule #2: Talk to your kids about it When you think you are ready to date, tell your children, Fisher suggests.
