In this episode I address a reader’s question:
I’m going to introduce the guy I’m seeing to my kids. Do I need to tell my ex? Even if it’s not serious?
Great question! Have a listen for my answer! Bottom lines:
- It’s none of your ex’s business — or vice versa.
- If you have a great and open relationship with your ex, then you should tell him because not telling him in your case would be weird.
- If your kids are at risk of getting stuck in the middle of this pickle — say, might lie about meeting your new guy to protect their dad’s feelings, or avoid a family fight — then you should also tell your ex in this case.
I also give you specific scripts for sharing your dating status with your kids’ dad, and tools for owning your truth, even if your ex calls you a filthy whore to your face (my story, maybe not your own).
