They had been dating for a little over two months and she was head over heels in love with him.
She didn’t understand why Baylie didn’t share her enthusiasm for Kevin because he was so perfect for their family.
As Caroline spoke, disappointment was apparent in her voice: “Kevin’s just so ideal for our family and I can really be myself with him. I figured that Baylie would like him because he’s a lot of fun and I was blindsided when she started complaining about him.” During our second session, I asked Caroline if she had thought through any disadvantages of introducing her daughter Baylie to Kevin so soon.
Consider the amount of time since your divorce, the age of your children, and the level of commitment to your partner.
Waiting to introduce your kids to a love interest will pay off for everyone in the long run.
She paused and said “not really” and so I asked her to write down a list of pros and cons for her homework assignment.
