So I have been split up with the father of my kids for over a year now. they dont even see him. I have been dating my boyfriend for a while and we have been serious for most of that time. we currently stay with my boyfriend several nights a week. We decided to get a place together, just us and the kids, since we both have roommates. How can i make this easy for my kids so its not negative on their behavior as most major changes tend to be for my kids?

Wwe do all those things still:-) they love him. We stay with him several days a week now & wen we dont they get upset. So they definatly want to live w him. Its just the move itself will be new.

Make sure they are still the center of your world. Remember, your boyfriend is YOUR boyfriend and not their father. Discipline should come from you, and you alone. There should be rules where they listen to your bf, but you and your bf need to outline what his job is. Transition them slowly. They still need to come first. Make this a joyous thing for them. Go out on adventures together with your bf, and make sure they feel like your new place is theirs also. Not just you and your boyfriends. Have you talked with your kids about moving in with him? Do they even want to?
