1. No matter how great you are, the kids will always come first. That means you need to be understanding if and when your plans change because something has come up with your new partner’s kids.
2. Depending on the person you are dating, you have to accept that you probably wont meet the kids for at least 6 months, possibly longer.
4. For a single parent, it will mean a lot if you ask about their kids, even if you have not met them yet. There is nothing better to a single parent than a person who shows genuine interests in their children.
