  • I would ask to meet her before my kids are going any where with her. After that I would tell my child just to go and check it out and if they do not like her after that then we will all talk about it.

  • Not sure how old your daughter is but unless there is a legitimate reason besides just the fact that she's there I'd say yes she has to go. Think about if you started dating and she didn't like it, you would still want her with you.

  • I wouldn't force them to go but let him know if he wants to spend time with his kids he's gonna have to do it without the girlfriend. Why don't the kids like the girlfriend? Did they say why?

  • Yeah, WHY do the kids not like the new girlfriend?

  • i tell them that they really should meet this new girl before they go making up there mind about her
    she maybe really nice . but i also think your ex could have come seen them without her and brought a photo and talked about her ect ect i also dont think kids she meet new partners untill they been going out a while and think there going to be togther long tearm

  • they dont like the fact that they havent meet her and when they do ask he changes the subject but when my dd's are w his family they make it a point to bring her name up or just say he got a new girl and the fact she has a 1 year year old (not by him) he spends time w that child but wont w them!! my dd's are 11 and 5 i havent even meet her idk i was just wondering i cant see myself forcing them to go if they dont want to is that wrong

  • so they are mad they haven't met her, yet they don't want to go if she is there and then they can meet her? That doesn't make sense.

    Answer by AnAnxiousHeart at 9:17 PM on Mar. 19, 2011

  • Well meet her. My kids father and I made an agreement when we broke up that when we have another relationship we have to meet the other person. Just to be aware of who the children are around. I mean you don't want your kids intrusted in the care of just anyone really. I would say you should meet her and then if your ok, be there when the kids meet her & take it slow. Him picking a g/f over seeing his kids is not acceptable.
