The best gift that any parent can give their children is a stable and a happy relationship between them. For children it means a loving environment to grow up and also something to look forward to at home. If the home environment is disturbed, children will begin hating it and will want to get away from it.
In the case of a single parent, having a relationship when children are at home is very difficult. The children who are used to a single parent have to suddenly start seeing a newer parent and they may not accept the new relationship very well. It is important for the parent to understand the sensitivity of the child and behave accordingly. At the same time it is wrong to say that the parent has no right to see someone else just because the children do not approve of it.
However, the parent can start seeing someone with the children’s approval and without hurting anyone if they are careful about it right from the beginning. In order to have a successful relationship with the new partner, the parent has to first talk to their children if they are old enough. If the child is very small you would still have to introduce the person in an outside environment so that the child meets them for the first time. Having someone over intimate and close to you for the first time in your house may not go down your child very well. Always ease the child into the process and not force them.
