Don’t introduce someone to your child(ren) until the relationship is getting serious.
As a single parent, you know that your child’s safety is your highest priority.Hurrying into a relationship increases the odds of an ensuing breakup or—even worse—NOT breaking up and finding yourself married to the wrong person.This not only wreaks havoc and heartache in your life, but in your children’s lives as well.Don’t allow your new partner to discipline your children.
You can protect your children from needless heartache and loss by not incorporating casual dating partners into their lives.
Naturally, keeping your children and your dates from crossing paths isn’t always 100 percent possible or even advisable, but do seek to shield your children as much as possible from the hurt or disillusionment that can come from bonding with people who may not play a long-term role in your life and in the life of your children. Rushing into a new relationship is not advisable under any circumstances and doubly so when there are children involved.
