And I would like some advice on what to do and what not to do? They are still adjusting to the fact that their mom and dad are not getting back together.

Welcome to the group.  I guess first I would urge you to make sure the kids understand that you're not trying to take their mom's place in their lives.

Hi and welcome.

Like the previous poster said, they need to know that even though their parents aren't getting back together, that you are not trying to take their moms place. Just be honest with them and keep the lines of communication open.

I have to say the same thing. Let them know you are not trying to take place of their mother. You have your hands full. Hope it all goes well.

not sure of the kids age  but  be a  friend first  get their trust and sense of security, do things with them, let them know you are not the 'bad mom' but a new one and talk to them about their mom, let them know you will love them too...  good luck
