Bounderies for single dating
Parents who have a spouse can hand off their teen to the other parent when they are feeling worn out. This can be exhausting, and it’s easy to feel you don’t have any strength left inside to resist your kid’s resistance. The answer isn’t trying harder, or using your will power.
Instead, realize that you don’t have what you don’t have.
On the other hand, we might realize something crosses a boundary for us after experiencing it for the first time.
What’s important is that you’re communicating any boundary changes to your partner and you’re making changes because YOU want to, not because you’re being pressured, forced or manipulated into making them.
If your partner does something that you like or don’t like, let them know.
