Effects of dating on children after divorce
6: Your new partner should just be themselves - Don’t try to be something you are not.
Kids will eat you up if you try too hard to be cool.
For teens, they don’t need, nor do they want, the new partner to just jump in and be a part of the family.
Children of divorced parents definitely have something to say about their parents dating again after divorce.
Kids are not stupid; they know when you are being someone you are not.” No.
5: Your children still need you - Remember that children of divorced parents have felt the sense of loss in a big way.
If the kids think you are just good friends and the relationship ends it won’t be so hard on them.
Having a relationship (or relationships) that are propelled into the family structure and then end abruptly is very difficult on the children.
