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 children, so you try to be cautious about whom they come in contact with.
We have seen countless headlines on the news of someone’s significant other abusing or killing their mate’s children. That is a pain that no parent wants to go through. So parents, you have to truly get to know someone, ask questions, and wait to introduce just anyone to 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 that 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.
In reality, everyone has their own timeframe when it comes to meeting the family and/or children. Some may wait 2-3 months or longer. Only you know what’s right for you and your children.
How long have you waited to introduce your kids to your mate?
