How do you bond with your partner’s child?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Sometimes relationships can get even more complicated by adding a child. Here are some ways to bond with your partner’s child and help ease up that often-troubling situation:

1. Be honest with them: Children are curious, so if they’re old enough to ask you personal questions, they most likely will. Tell them whatever they want to know about yourself, and be sure to be honest. It’s likely to bring you two closer together.

2. Find things in common: Try to pick up on things that the child likes to do, and use that to bond with them. If they like sports or movies, take a day to do those things with them.

3. Include them on some of your couple’s activities: Children always enjoy being included in any plans you have with their parent. Bring them along on some of your dates and make them family activities. You’ll still have a romantic time while also being able to connect with your partner’s child.
