"Once the boyfriend is introduced there is no going back, and expectations are raised," she adds.What to do instead: Time is the best measure of knowing when to introduce the children.When you’re a single mom sometimes you may feel all alone. You can be anything in this world, just don’t be UNGRATEFUL. Every time you Bless another person, you Bless yourself. We have to remember to connect with those that mean the most to us when we’re in a difficult space. We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated. My entire life can be described in one sentence: it didn’t go as planned, and that’s ok. It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face the world. You already know what you are worth and how priceless you are, but we want to let you know it just once more.
To remedy my fears, I turned to seasoned dating coaches, Julianne Cantarella, MSW, and Elisabeth Lamotte, a licensed psychotherapist and relationship expert, to figure out the biggest dating mistakes single moms make (and the smart moves that should replace them). "It's not only the woman who can be hurt if the relationship ends, but the children as well." A savvy single mom should wait as long as possible before introducing her kids to the potential boyfriend and never make the intro around the holidays, the experts advise."Women should gain a sense of her boyfriend's interaction based on how he treats her and possibly his own children if he has them," says Cantarella, who suggests erring on the side of caution.
Being a mom is one of the toughest jobs in the world, one that comes with a responsibility like no other job, one that has no fixed timings, and probably one which has no retirement.
If you are a single mom, the responsibilities just get doubled up.
Your child will always see the effort and hard work you put in, so each moment, you are amazing for your little one.
While you work twice as hard to give your child all the love and care and everything else that you possibly can, its truly a lot of work.
