Anyone who’s ever had children -- or even baby-sat -- knows that caring for them is a lot of work.
When you have kids, it’s a lifetime commitment, and you often have to put the needs of your kids before your own.

A certain amount of the single dad’s time will be spent on parental duties such as preparing meals, picking kids up from school or attending their soccer games and dance recitals.
This not only allows you to take some of that time for yourself, it allows the kids more alone time with their dad, which is healthy for them.However, when experts offer advice on dating men with children, they often focus on the challenges.Fortunately, dating a single dad also comes with many advantages.This level of maturity often translates into a relationship, and a single dad can make an excellent partner.The single dad can be a good choice for women who like kids but don’t necessarily plan to have children of their own.Christie Hartman is a psychologist and author of five dating and relationship books.
