If the ex isn't co-parenting and the kids are too young to be left alone, she will have to hire a babysitter or at least have advanced planning to go out.Money might also be tight for her, so offer to pay the sitter and definitely spring for all the other date expenses.Once your relationship becomes somewhat serious, try to get to know her son gradually, without attempting to rush or force the relationship or stepping in as a parental figure.Plan an outing that is fun and that requires minimal interaction.She holds bachelor's degrees in English and history from Centenary College of Louisiana.Studies include midwifery, naturopathy and other alternative therapies.You and your girlfriend should talk seriously about this next step.

Although the child at first may refuse to bond with you, over time (maybe even over a year), you can build a relationship.
