Divorced parents dating each other again Cam chat with mom
Do not allow your ex to control your life and prevent you from dating.
Do listen to their concerns but judge yourself if they are reasonable and legitimate.
Many parents feel that having children can be a negative factor in dating.
They often believe that prospective dates will not choose them if they know that there are kids involved.
Wait until you are very sure of your new relationship and both of you have realistic expectations of what a blended family is about.
Even if your children express a positive interest in your dating life, it is best not to involve them.

Reassure your kids that you are not trying to replace the other parent in their lives. Reassure your ex spouse that you are not trying to replace them and visibly encourage your children’s ongoing relationship with them.
It is also best not to go on a date with your children in tow.
This often happens when two divorced parents meet and have kids around the same age. If your children are friends, then allow them to continue that friendship and keep your dating activities to when you have a babysitter and are away from the kids.
There may be variations in treatment that your pediatrician may recommend based on individual facts and circumstances.
