    Just looking for  little advice, I left an abusive relationship successfully over a year ago. I’ve been seeing a new person and sharing custody of my 3yr old son mostly amicably with his Dad.
    My new partner and I have got to the stage where we would like to move in together (He is joining my home) I have had the difficult conversation with my ex and with support explained that he can no longer control my behaviour with words or punishment and advised him of the situation out of courtesy.

    my question for the forum is: if you have been in this moving in together with a very young child scenario, what were the things that went well and which didn’t? Did your new partner move in at a time where your child was there or not? Did you try and explain to your child beforehand?

    My son and my new partner have spent time together inside and outside of the home often and get along well. I am just keen to make sure that we get this right for all involved.

    thanks for any thoughts
