It may take time for the kids to warm up to you, especially if they are old enough to understand the situation.
Avoid attempting to replace Mom and never say anything negative about her, which only hurts them more.
All the check boxes are ticked, except for one – he is a divorcee.
Most people who date a divorced man ALWAYS ignore the basic facts and think that just because you've “fallen in love” everything will be all sunshine and rainbows.
Worse off, if you don’t get along with the kids, you will feel neglected, unloved, you will begin to slowly resent him for always putting his children first.
When dating a divorced man with full custody, knowing what to expect helps ensure that the relationship goes smoothly.
It’s easy to assume a man has full custody because the children’s mother isn’t fit to raise the children.
In some situations, Mom has significant and longstanding problems that interfere with her ability to make sound decisions, so custody falls to Dad.
However, there are other reasons a father may have full custody, such as when he adopts children on his own, when Mom has passed away, or other reasons that both parents agree upon.
