December 25, 2009, Newsletter Issue #285: Sex & Being a Single Parent

Tip of the Week

Singles dealing with the issue of sex during dating is scary enough. Trying to figure out how to handle dating and sex as a single parent may feel like it is enough to push you over the edge. If you are one of the brave ones (a.k.a. have children and dating), consider the following:

Practice safe sex. Reckless behavior is no longer an option as a parent. You risk your child becoming an orphan every time you have unprotected sex. Just because you start having sex with someone you’re dating does not mean it’s time to introduce them to your child. Don’t introduce your kids to someone you’re dating until a) you’ve determined that this is a good safe person; and b) the relationship is one you take seriously enough to think that this person may be in your life for a while. Do not let your children see a dating partner “stay over” until the relationship is serious. Kids will eventually deduce that staying over means you’re having sex. They shouldn’t see this with multiple casual partners.
