Single parenting autism child dating

"It's important to engage your village, friends, family who can support you with time-sharing and babysitting," Zane says.

The children may already feel they lost one parent in the divorce, Baumgartner says, you don't want to put them through another loss if this relationship ends.

It's also important to consider the age and personality of your children.

Whether you're six months post-divorce or six years, there is no "right" time to start dating. If you're dying to get out of the house, call your girlfriends for a night out. If you're looking to get your heart pounding, try some cardio.
