Parents should explain that they, like other human beings, have sexual feelings and that these are a natural part of adult life. Children may feel they have been abandoned again and experience a renewed loss when parents spend time with another adult.Finding extra time for the child while seeing a new person is difficult, but important. Children may feel anger at being forced by adults to make another adjustment.
This is especially true for children in their pre-teens and early teens.
"If you start to talk to your son about bringing a stranger home, it could trigger all sorts of anxious thoughts and negative feelings on his part."Rather than create a situation like that, try to keep your dating life separate from your life with your son," Goldstein advises.
For example, plan to meet your date at the movie theater or restaurant instead of at your house.
Your parent just has to have some fun time to get things off their minds..!!
