Susan's Sage Advice: Dating Daddy Mistakes

Article by Susan Trombetti in Children

Don’t try to make every woman you meet the mother of your children! Lots of times it comes naturally to a woman to nurture since we were brought up that way, but women don’t really want to wipe your child’s face and tie their shoe laces. She would rather be enjoying a romantic evening at a vineyard or a candlelight dinner with you and escaping life’s realities for a bit.

Look for a good role model for your children. Life isn’t about you anymore!  If you will be spending any time with this person, they must be someone your children can look up to as well as you.

Of course, same as with the woman, there should be no overnight guests or appearances while you have children in your home. No one gets to go out and ring the doorbell like they are showing up for breakfast!

Try to spend father’s day with your kids if you have visitation. It means something to them even if they don’t realize it.

Don’t try to be a Disney dad! You are your kid’s dad and they will respect you for it.

Your kids don’t get to pick your girlfriends. Sometimes, kids aren’t going to like anyone but Mom.

Don’t let them make you feel guilty and try to manipulate your choice of partner. If you like the person, they are a good role model and law abiding and have your children’s best interest at heart, your children do not need to agree before you date or marry someone. That is the number one tip for single dads!
