When parents begin dating
There are tons of changes that happen in your life, and you may never really get used to the idea though you will likely adapt to your new life eventually.
One thing that makes the process even harder though is when you parents start to date other people.
In cultures where dating is acceptable, it can help you learn and practice social skills, develop friendships, have wholesome fun, and eventually find an eternal companion.
You should not date until you are at least 16 years old.
Instead, if they answer your questions or seem eager to date, you can steer the conversation toward reassuring them that these feelings are normal. Are they just trying to keep up with their friends?
Are they confident and able to take care of themselves? Do they look physically more mature than they are, emotionally?
That’s why so many kids try to keep their parents from dating at all.Developing serious relationships too early in life can limit the number of other people you meet and can perhaps lead to immorality.Invite your parents to become acquainted with those you date.In addition to Hope 4 Hurting Kids, Wayne previously started I Am A Child of Divorce and Divorce Ministry 4 Kids to help kids who are dealing with the disruption of their parents' relationship.
