When Mom gets a boyfriend
Truth be told, we probably would all like our parents to stay together and stay married forever. But in real life, that doesn't always happen. When parents break up, usually mom or dad will eventually start dating new people. That can be tough to get used to. Larissa is in that spot. Let's help!
“I'm really worried my mom's new boyfriend won’t like me or that my mom will spend more time with him. I'm also afraid of living in a house with him too.”Larissa
You are definitely not alone. Step 1 is to talk to your mom and share your concerns. For sure, she doesn't want you to worry. And she will like knowing that the time she spends with you is so important to you. One good question for her is how serious their relationship is. It may be that she just likes having someone to spend time with and isn't thinking of getting serious. If they are more serious, she can let you know that, too.
What would make you more comfortable? Would you like to have dinner with the two of them so you could get to know each other better? He might be as nervous as you are.
