Treating Your New Partner Like Your Child

I hear you…NO WAY! I would never treat my new partner like a child. Sure, you may not cut up his (her) meat but do you find yourself directing” him (her) the same way that your talk to your kids? It’s natural when you’ve been a single parent for a long time to assume the parental voice. You’re used to giving the orders and directing the house activities and chores. ¬†Ask yourself the next time you bark out an order if that is the same manner and tone you would use with a guest? Chances are the answer is no. It’s a hard habit to break but if you don’t break it you’ll be headed to divorce #2.
