DATING WHILE PARENTING, AGING BABY BOOMER STYLE
How do last-wave Baby Boomer singles - with youngsters still living at home - find free time for dating and romance? HaHaHa...
Fortunate boomers have families that provide backup. Singles arrange dates to coincide with children's sleepovers at the homes of either the other parents or willing grandparents, aunts, et al. It's a great arrangement - if family members are readily available, actually willing, and truly present in the children's lives. More importantly, if the kids are safe and comfortable.
A practical solution works well for those with or without families. Singles set up sleepover exchanges with a couple of trustworthy single-parent friends or neighbors. 'You take my kids one night and I'll take your kids another night.' It's a good arrangement - if the kids get along (and there's not too many of them). And again, if they are safe and comfortable.
Yep. Both plans forgo spontaneity and ration dating sprees.
Nope. There are no easy or convenient solutions - but as we all know, parenting is not easy or convenient.
