Question: How old was my kids when we started dating?

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, kids start dating at an average age of 12 and a half for girls and 13 and a half for boys. Every teen — or preteen — is different, though, and your child might be ready sooner or later than their peers.

How long should you date before introducing your child?

Consider waiting six months to a year of dating before introducing your new boyfriend to your children. Your kids may not be ready before then to see a potential new father figure. Contact between your boyfriend and your kids should gradually increase over time.
