Separated and dating with kids
Never badmouth the ex It’s really important not to insult or speak negatively about your date’s ex-partner, especially in front of his children.
Even if he complains about her from time to time, don’t jump on board and don’t remind him of things he may have said in the heat of the moment.
Fifty percent of these kids are also likely to experience three or more changes in who’s parenting them before the age of 5, and a third will experience another change between the ages of 6 and 12.
It’s best to take things slowly and not to feel impatient about reaching certain milestones together.
When it works out, the kids benefit from having more adults in their lives.
But what happens, as so often does, when the relationship breaks down?
Your date might also have kept in contact with friends who knew both of them while they were together.
While it’s not always easy, try your best to be understanding and remember that there’s no need to feel threatened by his past.
