Let’s Talk: How Long Should I Wait Until I Bring My Significant Other Around My 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 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?

  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
