Kids of divorce and dating
Part of that healing involves accepting responsibility for your part in the marriage not having been successful.

' Some men use theirkids like dogs in a park to get attention.
I think it's horribly unfair to children."Joe B., father of 7-year-old Cathy, was initially very careful about how much time the two of them spent with his girlfriend and her son.
