    in Parents

    With the upcoming holiday's I thought it would be a great to discuss first holiday meet and greets when you are in a new relationship. How do you prepare to meet your new mates family for the first time? Not only that, but the first time is during the holiday season? 

    How do you prepare your kids? Do you tell them where your going and who you are meeting? 

    What if they don't like you or you don't like them?

    There could be so many different outcomes to this scenerio. But let's have a REAL discussion on how things could go.
