S/O of Calling BF "DH".....Kids Calling New Boyfriend "Dad"

Outside of a long term relationship where the boyfriend is more or less the Dad figure for the child, what's the opinion of a woman forcing her kids or manipulating them into calling her new boyfriend "Dad".  I see this often with some women who have small children.  New boyfriend, the relationship lasts more than a month and suddenly, the kids have to call the guy "Dad".

I find it disgusting.  A lot of times, you find out this is the 3rd "Dad" these poor kids have had in a year or less.  And the women think there's nothing wrong with it, never mind the mind fuck it is for their kids.

Unless the man has helped raise them for the last several years, he is not their Dad.  He is your boy toy.

There's my opinion.  What's yours?

I think if it's one new boyfriend after spltting from their father, that's reasonable.

I agree with you. My son was 2 when is started dating Dh. He was the first boyfriend I had since I became a single mom when my son was born. My son didn't meet him for 6 months and then he called him "Mikey" my son didn't start calling him dad until we had been married almost a year.

I find it odd, but you're an adult, so that situation is a tad different.  I mean mainly women who have small children (9 and under) and practically FORCE them to call him Dad from day one.  It's screwed up on so many levels, I can't even understand it.
