Have Parenting Questions? Ask a Parenting Counselor for Answers
how long have you been with your significant other? do they know about it at all?
Hi, I have been with her for 3 years. They met her once in 2010 because my affair partner and her then husband came to visit our house.
please bear with me. am having difficulty getting onto the server at just answer and am typing on my phone. am with you and hope we can continue
How much do the kids know about your new relationshp?
I didnt say a word about it until the divorce was complete through the court
then, I put up one picture of her in a back room
then moved it to the living room
I have said her name now in front of them once or twice
all of this is post legal divorce.
I created distance before then.
And how did they respond to that?
It is all in the way you handle it with them and offering them reassurance of your love for them.
If they feel that security from you then all can go well.
They ignore it and act uninterested in the fact the the photo is there. I once mentioned to my son that Mandy purchased eomthign fro me, but he didnt reply. Once, about 4 months ago, I took them to an aquarium, where she work(ed). My daughter said "oh, this is where Mandy works" and that was it.
What about the actions of the ex?
Try not to force it in terms of letting them take their time to warm up
Pick an activity that the kids love and have her join
I was thinking that we would go for a pizza, something simple.
Are you with me?
