What to Do When Your Child and Your New Boyfriend Clash

You have finally found the man of your dreams. You love spending time with him. You enjoy every moment together, and you already see yourselves as the perfect family. Your boyfriend, on the other hand, does not share your love and affection for your child. He might like your offspring, but he would be just as happy if the little darling spent more time at Grandma’s house, and your child would be just as happy if your new boyfriend got a job out of town. So what do you do when your new boyfriend and your child just don’t see eye to eye? Here are some ideas.

#1. Talk to Your Child

Get your child’s perspective on the situation and make that your priority. Your child might be feeling resentful of the new man in the house, especially if he is close to his biological father.

#2. Break It Off at Once if There are Signs of Abuse

Chances are what you are looking at is just a clash of personalities, but it could be something more. If there are any signs of abuse, either physical or emotional, you owe it to your child to break it off at once. No guy is worth damaging the physical and mental well-being of your son or daughter.
