Then he drops the bomb: he has a child or children from a past relationship.
So yesterday, Deesha and I sat down to lunch–we ate our favorite Thai food and discussed our not so favorite topic–co-parenting through problems and over obstacles.
I asked her what six things should women know when dating men with children. If a man says, my child’s mother won’t let me see my kids, dig deeper, because while the family court system is broken, sometimes men say they aren’t allowed see their children when they haven’t sought parenting time through a judge.
Ask yourself, is this man in his child’s life for not only the first day of school and graduation but all the moments in between?
If a man is unable to provide for a child financially, that’s not the child’s mother’s fault.
I also thought paying child support meant your child’s needs were met.
