hi there I have been dating my BF for about a year. I have never been around his kids yet although they do know of me and our children used to be friends before they moved away. My bf has spent a lot of time with my children and is around almost everyday for dinner or in the evening. When it comes to his kids I thought by this summer we should be having play dates or meet at the beach or somewhere neutral. My children are 13,10 and 2 his are 10,8,7. Their mother has done nothing but try to keep them from having a good relationship with father and has them under the impression I am the cause of the divorce. When is s good time to start the blending of the kids?
