Going through divorce dating kids

Though divorce is a difficult process, it can also be immensely freeing.

For some, the logical next step will be to start dating again.

As you move forward, listen to their feelings, and express your own.

As far as what you should tell your children about your dating life depends on how old they are.

Your children probably won’t respond enthusiastically the first time that they meet your new partner.

They may express anger and frustration in different forms like acting out in front of your new partner or even giving you the silent treatment.
