I have three grown children. The oldest lives in another state with her family, middle child is temporarily staying with me (she is 21, working and going to college) and the youngest lives with his father. My girlfriend has never had a child, or even been around them. She tells me she prefers women with children because we seem to be more giving, patient, etc., yet she has a problem when my kids fall short of independence or disrupt plans she and I have. I dont see my son all that often, perhaps once a month for a few days, so my time with him is precious. She grew up in a family where kids were seen and not heard, so I am sure that my way of dealing with my kids doesnt set well with her. She feels that I should be more rigid instead of being flexible with them. We dont live together...yet, and may never IF we cant blend our lives. Any advise? Suggestions?
