Is it OK to keep in touch with your ex’s children?

Cupid’s Advice:

It can be difficult to “dump” the rest of your ex’s family after a breakup, especially when it comes to kids.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Healing time: If you’re the one who’s broken up with your partner, it might be a good idea to step aside and give them their space by avoiding their kids as well.

2. Be a friend: If you want to continue the relationship that you’ve built with your ex’s kids, it would be best for both sides if you and your ex were friends.  Whatever you do, don’t vent to the kids about your past relationship and current feelings about your ex.

3. Be respectful: Your ex may want you out of their lives and their children’s lives completely.  If this is the case, then you need to be respectful of their decision.  Losing that connection is a risk you took once you broke up.
