To help make the transition from mommy or daddy to date, lover, boyfriend or girlfriend, stop thinking of yourself as just a parent, and start thinking of yourself as an attractive, devastatingly sexy single.To help boost your confidence, take more care with your appearance than you might be in the habit of doing.I know how important it is to take care of your children; to meet their physical and emotional needs.
When you can be open with your children about your social life, it reduces their anxiety and builds trust.
Explain to them that just as they need to have friends their own age, you need to have adult friendships.
Even if you fit the description of single mom or dad, it's important for you to realize that you are more than just a parent.
You are a vibrant, energetically alive adult who deserves to have a social life.
The best gift you can give your children is the example of a well-balanced, happy adult life.
