First of all, is this a new relationship? Really your kids should not be made to meet a new man in your life until you know for sure it is very serious. Like seriously, dating for a year or more.

I should not bring the man to your house any more until your kids are more comfortable with the idea of you dating someone. This does not mean they get to control your love life, it just means they are allowed to be comfortable in their own home. If you are just getting to know this man, you probably act differently around him and your kids can see and feel the difference.

Also, if they really get to know this guy after a good period of time, and they don't like him for one reason or another, how are you gonna handle that?
