I am going into Chemical Engineering, how can I earn money and do good in school?For many single parents, dating is exciting and scary at the same time.Right off the bat, there are many reasons why it’s not ideal to date someone with a child.After all, it’s not just the fact that you have to make it work with the person you’re dating and the child that comes along with him or her, but you also have to deal with the ex who is the other parent to that child.But how do you deal with this situation when you don't have any children of your own?Knowing that I was moving back to a small town after years of living in cities, I looked at my therapist and said: "I can't date someone who has children. And while I was in love with both the man and the kid, I was totally lost. There is nothing wrong with single or divorced parents. But my friends back home in the small town I was moving back to? He had a son with his ex-girlfriend, who I also remember from my past.First thing you need to understand is there is nothing wrong with dating a person or marrying someone with kids.
My mom said I embarrassed her by bringing an Asian girl to prom, she says she is not going to help me with my college expenses.
The only books I could find were about step-parenting. Considering the divorce rate in this country, I thought finding the advice would be easy. *crickets* My relationship with this man continued for... But I did learn a LOT about the kiddos and how to deal with them.
So here is my advice about dating people with kids.

The only thing that it changes is knowing this relationship will have more requirements.
The good news is that millions of men and women make it work, which is proof that it is possible.
