Women you gotta be smarter than this, go back to his place, keep your kids out of it, and leave the little ones with a babysitter.
So go forth, date, have fun and remember when children are concerned you have to give respect in order to earn respect.
If you have good rapport with your child, have regular talks with them and they respect you, then it is important that you get their approval.
Check his credentials: If you have a toddler or baby and the guy is okay with dating you, then this next step is important.
Last week we recorded a podcast on social media and how this impacts your mental well being.
As a group of girls in our late twenties we feel that our generation have been privileged (or maybe not so privileged) to have seen the world both before and after the trends of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat.
You have to cater to both on some level, especially if the child is a female herself.
Engage the child in conversation when he/she’s around but make it natural conversation, not forced conversation.Most teens are cynical and standoffish to new boyfriends so you have to expect hostility initially.Don’t go turning on the young man’s Madden game and professing your “skills” in hopes that the video game will bond you to him.Ask your Teen: If you have a teenager it is very important that you get their approval after an introduction or two is made with your potential lover.If your kid has daddy issues, as in wanting you to stay alone in hopes of your ex coming back into your life – then go ahead and skip the introduction to the new guy.The single parent dilemma is felt the hardest by the children, and as a product of such a household I am lucky enough to have this insight in my dating life.
