Remember - if her children do not like you, your relationship with the single mother will probably not last. Assuming you want a long-term relationship with the mother, be the good guy to her kids. Let her make the decisions, and let her decide on the disciplinary factors - and don't ever disagree with her (especially not in front of the kids). If you do disagree with something she does or says to her children, think very carefully how important it is to you before you decide to discuss it with her ... and also carefully consider HOW you discuss it with her from a political standpoint. So much of the politics of communicating with women resides in HOW you present ideas to her ... how it makes her feel when listening to you. Keep that in mind not just for discussions concerning her children, but in all discussions.
