Single & Ready To Mingle? How To Tell Your Kids You're Moving On

Dating after divorce isn't easy, but most of the time it's even harder for your kids. Regardless of whether you and your ex-spouse have been separated for awhile, the wound may still be fresh for your children; there's a possibility that your children are holding onto the hope that you'll get back together someday. Because it may be hard for them to grasp the fact that one of their parents may not be around at home anymore, treading carefully when it comes to introducing them to someone new is the best way to shield them from the pain of going through another loss. But just how soon is too soon to mention that you or your ex is dating again with your kids?

Seriously, What's Wrong With Parents?

No one ever said being a parent is easy. Still, it's better to never have a child at all, than have one and take its life away.
