Let’s Talk: How Long Should You Wait Until You Bring Your Significant Other Around Your Child(ren)?

Dating can be very challenging when it comes to meeting the right person, not just for you but for your children as well. Of course, you don’t want to bring just anyone around your kids, so you have to be cautious about who they come in contact with.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There have been countless headlines about someone’s significant other abusing or killing their mate’s children. That is a pain that no parent wants to bear, as parents should never have to bury their children. So, parents, you have to truly get to know someone, ask questions, and wait to have just anyone around your children.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every man or woman you come in contact with doesn’t deserve to meet your children. Take your time to get to know the person and ask plenty of questions. You want to make sure the person you are dating even likes children. Do not continue dating someone who feels that children can’t fit into their lifestyle. If they have shared they aren’t interested in children, do not think you can change their mind.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, look into their backgrounds. Get a background check to be on the safe side. You will be surprised what details the internet will give you for a small fee. You shouldn’t want your children around someone with a criminal background such as murder, aggravated assault, sexual offenses, and etc.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As parents, we have to protect our children at all costs. Now, I’m not telling you what to do but we have to think and be extra cautious. Everyone isn’t going to have the patience to deal with your kids.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now, everyone has their own timeframe when it comes to meeting the family and/or children. Some may wait 2-3 months or longer. Realistically, one should wait 6 months or longer. I say this because people show you what they want you to see at the beginning of a relationship. Once they have become comfortable, in most cases, their true self becomes more evident.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remember, only you know what’s right for you and your children.

Have recent headlines made you more cautious about who you date and bring around your children?

  1. Speaking as a child who’s parents split let me answer this from some of the children’s point of view. NEVER!!!! Mom didn’t even try to date again. Dad did & I learned him, his girlfriends & they kids! His new women would try to be my friend & I would always shut them down. He even had one with kids that they all moved together & that ladies kids was calling my dad Dad. I shut that down fast! Put these paws on them & had to remind them they got they own daddy & this one here ain’t theirs! And after that Dad stopped being open with his love life. And would wish one of them try to whoop me cause Granny(his mom) wasn’t haven’t that, not your child keep yo hands off! I’m grown now and if I could go back I probably would have done more to them ladies. I’m the youngest, so I used the “I’m the baby” card a lot! #keepmoving #noregrets
