Announcing an Engagement

with Ron Deal | November 27, 2019

What you're really asking is, "How do I announce an engagement and ensure my kids will be happy about it?" Ah, how to sum up the entire book Dating and the Single Parent. Well, you can't guarantee their happiness. Whether young or old, how children react is up to them. What you can do is be calm and matter of fact. Tell them when, where, how, and what it means for them. Then listen to their response. Most importantly, reassure them you still love and are committed to them and always will be.
