2011 with all it's failures and successes is gone; and 2012 is new and refreshing. This may be the year that you get the new home, job or relationship that you have been looking for. After all, 25.8% of the children in the United States live in a single parent home (according to statistics released in 2007). Which means, this year has the potential of forming a lot of new blended families. Given the possibility of new relationships on the horizon, it is important to be aware of the 3 biggest mistakes that single parents make when dating.
It is important to understand that dating with children is not always an easy thing to do. For that reason, many parents decide to wait until their children have grown up, and have left home, to begin dating. However, if you get counselling, join a support group and/or talk with your religious leader- they can help to guide you in a healthy direction. Any tips that you receive from this blog are based on my educational and professional experience. There are no "cookie cutter" answers. Dating is trial and error. It's a good idea not to involve the children in all the trials and errors of dating.
