If you are dating a woman with children and she asks you early on what you think of her kids do not assume that she wants a detailed and honest answer about what you think of them. What she wants is a nod to the fact that she is a good mother. If you don’t think she is a good mother then I have to wonder why you would want to be in a relationship with her unless you have rescue fantasies. Perhaps you might want to think about this.
