    My daughter has agreed to meet my Ex’s new partner, I’m struggling to deal with this and I’m looking for a bit of advice about how to have a positive attitude towards this!?

    Been there, it’s horrible. I’d asked my ex to wait until 8 months since we’d spilt to even consider a meeting, but he went against it, they met after only 4 months.

    Things I’ve taken from the experience, you’re allowed to feel any emotions you want, it’s normal, but don’t show your child, better to say nothing than to make them feel bad about seeing them. You will ALWAYS be mother, and the new women can’t take that away, you bond won’t allow.

    I hope it works out ok

    Thank you, I asked for him to wait at least 6 months but he has ignored me! He  introduce my son two after 3 months but my daughter (11yrs) hasn’t wanted to meet her but has not decided she will meet her, it just makes me feel really emotional. It’s just something I’m going to have to learn to deal with and find a way to control my emotions.

    I have said that when I meet someone new I’d wait 6 months before  introducing anyone new and wouldn’t introduce then if I didn’t feel it was going anywhere.

    Hi I so know how you feel. Just very recently out of a 14 year relationship and my ex just sent my daughter photos of him with his new girlfriend and her son. My daughter is devastated and now won’t talk to her dad or see him. He is just trampling all over us and it’s so cruel to my daughter. He’s told so many lies and makes out he’s such a great dad to outsiders but he’s not at all. It’s heartbreaking, how do you put yourselves back together after so much deceit?
