Single parent dating

For most single parents, dating can be one of the most exciting part of their lives. However, one of the first things to do is to tell your child that you are dating.

Telling your child that you are dating someone can be very difficult. You don't know how your child is going to react, and the worst thing to do is to make your child feel less important. Once you've told your child you are dating someone, there's no turning back. Be prepared for questions from your child that might make you feel uneasy.

Before introducing your child to the person you are dating, make sure that the person you are dating is someone that you envision yourself with in the future. You don't want your child to get attached with someone who you don't see yourself with in the future.

Many children who live with a single parent has probably suffered come kind of loss. Be sure to give your child reassurance that you won't run off with another person and leave them. Let them know that you are the number one love in their life, and there's no way you would leave them.

One of the biggest challenges single parents face is competition between the person you are dating and your child. Your child might be used to a certain amount of time you share with them. Wen that time is cut short, they may get angry and upset. Try to incorporate them in your relationship by letting them know what's going on, and let them be a part of outings, (such as picnics and movies) you have with the person you are dating.

If you are a single parent who's dating someone, prepare to get caught in the middle. The person your dating wants to feel special too, and you may find it hard to give them a lot of your time. The person that you're dating has to accept the fact that you come with a package deal, and if they can't see that, then the relationship probably won't work.

If you and your partner have been dating for only a short time, don't allow the person to discipline your child. Your child is probably not going to listen to them, and many problems may arise.

If you are single parent looking to get back on the dating scene, talk with your child about the person you are going to be dating. Ask your child if they have any questions or concerns. Do the same for the person who you're dating, be up front and let them know how important they are to you, as well as your child.
