Will I be putting them through another “divorce” of sorts and damage them further? Integration Personally, I come from the position that our children need to be, at least on some level, a part of the dating process we are entering into.
On the other hand, some have little concern for the children and purely see dating as something for themselves and that their kids are not affected by it unless they get to that “serious” stage. In almost every case, our children have no say in the divorce. My children were “told,” not “asked.” And when it came to me remarrying, I did not line up several “potential” candidates for the position of wife and have my kids select the most appropriate woman for the job!
Even children of single parents can have negative feelings associated with “not having” a mother or father in their life.
When a parent begins dating, these negative feelings can be intensified for the child.
Solidity Before you introduce anyone new into your children’s life you need to know that your new relationship is stable.
