Dating a woman with young children
When you finally meet your sweetheart's offspring, engage them at whatever level they seem to feel most comfortable.Ask them about school and what they're learning, what they're reading or what they thought of a particular TV show or kid-centric movie without coming across as trying too hard.
If your date wants you to meet her son right away, suggest that she introduce you as a friend.
You may consider bringing the child a small gift to show your good will and sincere interest in him, such as baseball cards for a collector or new crayons for an aspiring artist.
Don’t bring anything extravagant, which he may perceive as an effort to buy his affection.
Go ice skating, take a day hike, visit the zoo or attend a sporting event.
Activities such as those offer low-pressure ways of becoming acquainted with each other.
