Dating a divorced man with children blog
If you are dating a woman with kids, you probably aren’t doing it just for fun. You’ve got to have the talk.”I bring that up because that is a classic case where a single guy began dating a woman with a child, and had so much to learn and go through.
You most likely really, really like the woman (or love her) and you are smart enough to realize that with her, comes her children. Same is the case with Scott Trick, Divorced Guy Grinning’s guest blogger.
Fun and Excitement The definition of fun and excitement itself will change, especially if the new step parent does not have kids.
Fun and excitement will change from grown up fun to kid fun.
It's hard enough bringing up children when two parents are on the same team.
Now you have 2 parents who don't live together and 2 Step-Parents/BF/GF all putting their input in to "what's right".
All it takes is for one of them to be a bad influence and you have trouble. I'm 31, and i'm dating a woman who just turned 39 and has 2 kids (4 and 6).
Throw in child support problems, possible jealousy issues with any of them, and any of the children have psych issues from the divorce itself and it's a big nut to crack. I've never been great around kids, they annoy me a lot, though i always thought i wanted kids, it's not my time.
Here is Scott’s guest post that gives us a glance at the transition from single guy to married guy with step kids, and all the wonderful things that can happen if you are open-minded, have insight into what the kids are going through, and just give it time. But if you keep in mind what the kids went through, you will have a better understanding and be a great step parent.
