Divorced parent and dating

Specifically, single mothers’ dating behaviors directly influenced their son’s sexual behaviors, and indirectly influenced their daughter’s sexual behaviors by affecting her attitudes on sex.

Parents should be sensitive to their children’s feelings but not turn to a permissive parenting style because they feel guilty or embarrassed.

Balancing the emotions of your children with the excitement of a new, positive, relationship will help smooth the transition into single-parent dating.

This may be because of the diverted attention in the wake of limited time together due to custody issues.

Parents need to make sure before things get tricky that children understand their continued importance to them, the freedom for the child(ren) to continue a close loving relationship with the ex-spouse (despite any personal misgivings) and the possibility of new people in the parent’s life.

Similar research also supports this idea: a gradual approach allows children time to adjust to their parents’ dating (and the new dating partner) at a pace that allows for successful parenting.

If the decision has been made to bring the new partner into the child’s life, make sure that they meet on neutral territory (i.e., not home) in a casual setting.
