Dating after divorce with children


It's not necessary for him to meet every person you go on a date with — this may be overwhelming and confusing.Wait until you know if a relationship has serious potential before introducing your child.Be patient — it's likely to take some time for your son to adjust.

Try to understand the aspects that upset him, which can help you find ways to make the experience easier on him.

If he's worried that dating will cut into your time together, for example, then you might create some special one-on-one time with him.

They both live with me, although their father lives in the next town and my son often stays with him. When should I tell my kids that I am dating and when should I introduce them to this new person in my life?

Talking with a counselor or other divorced parents who are dating may help.

I have two teenagers, 13 (a son) and 15 (a daughter).
