When should a single mom introduce boyfriend?
Many parents make a rule that they wont introduce anyone to the kids until theyve dated for three, six, or even 9 months. The reasoning behind this is that the children may judge, harbor resentment, or feel hostile towards your boyfriend and potentially sabotage a good relationship.
How soon should you introduce your boyfriend to your child?
Consider waiting six months to a year of dating before introducing your new boyfriend to your children. Your kids may not be ready before then to see a potential new father figure. Contact between your boyfriend and your kids should gradually increase over time.
