If you’re not in a committed relationship, it is very easy to make your kids the prominent one in your life.

And in these families, the parents put their relationship before the kids.

But that’s okay, because you’re going to change him and make him be better. I can’t tell you how many conversations I have had with women who have found themselves in a situation like this and have become increasingly frustrated that he is still facing the same struggles as months earlier when they first got together.
