Now I have to assume here that you do, in fact, like children! If you do not like children, then you probably should not date a woman who has kids ... as dealing with her children is unavoidable. If you are not sure if you like children, then you will figure it out fast. Children require patience at times - but when you make them happy, and they smile - it can provide a great deal of joy in both of your lives.
When it comes to dating women with children, you must remember that it is almost always difficult for children of any age to see their mother with anyone except their father. In addition to the hurdle of coping with the mother and father no longer being together, you may also have to deal with jealousy on their part - as they may see the attention you receive from their mother as competing with the attention she gives them. You also have to know that you cannot simply step into a relationship with a woman who has children, and immediately expect the children to like you - it is usually much more of a process, and the duration of that process is directly dependent upon your behavior. It is all very complicated - and I am by no means an expert. I have not studied the psychology of children anywhere except in the school of reality. I am certain that many experts will say that I do not give this topic of children enough time or attention in this website - but as I said before, I'm just trying to give you the highlights of what I have learned in my lifetime. You can decide for yourself what is different about your situation, and how it can be explained and dealt with.
Let me begin with what I've learned are the seven most important principles for a Midlife Bachelor to adhere to in terms of behavior toward a woman and her children.
