Dating a man with a child on the way
Throw dad’s new girlfriend into the mix and it just adds more uncertainty to their lives. Too many people push new partners into their kids’ lives in a bid to normalise things, where instead a more circumspect approach is prudent. Of course, children of different ages need different approaches, but when it comes to discipline, for the most part leave it to dad.
At some point the children will become curious about who dad is dating if it looks like it is going to be an ongoing affair. Over time, if you win their respect and affection, you can offer counsel to his kids.
The simplicity of them being a mini version of your boyfriend/girlfriend and the fact they carry a part of them makes that child special.
Our lives filled with working and taking care of things, we often forget what it feels like to just have fun, the way a kid knows how to naturally.Sure, you have a right to be treated with respect as someone special in their father’s life, but don’t be surprised if they don’t warm to you immediately.And the easiest way to ensure they stay frosty is to try bossing them around. Just because you are going out with their dad, you can’t stroll around his house like you own the joint.Sometimes dating someone with children can be difficult when you don't have any of your own... After awhile I realize, I like this person enough to give it a shot with someone with children.yet I know when I first started talking to someone with children I was scared. If I fail, it's okay, it's not the end of the world. I just became another role model for them to look up to and I was okay with that.
