For example, be sensitive to how your child feels when your new friend comes to dinner.
Here are some do’s and don’t’s for dating when you’re single with children: DON’T force your child to like a person just because you do.
If you’ve decided to start dating, it is important for you to discuss and accept all of your child’s feelings when this happens.
It’s also critical that you carefully consider who will be spending time around your children.
Tell him or her that your children have been taught to tell if any of these rules are broken no matter what.
DO ask your children if they like the new person and why or why not.
