Bachelorette Emily Maynard is having some trouble finding her true love. On Monday’s episode, set in London, suitor Kalon McMahon brought out a side of Maynard none of the contestants wanted to see after calling her daughter Ricki “baggage,” according to People. A hurt Emily exploded on Kalon, feeding him his own line, “I’d love to hear you talk, but not until I’m done,” before immediately sending him packing. She also criticized her other dates for not sticking up for her in her absence.
What do you do if the person you’re dating doesn’t accept your child?
Any single parent knows how brutal the dating world can be. Here are some tips to make it easier if your significant other doesn’t accept your child:
1. Leave: Any date that doesn’t accept your child doesn’t accept you. There’s no point continuing a relationship with this person.
2. Be understanding: If you’re dating someone who has never been a parent, you have to understand that they don’t know what it’s like. Try to show them how important your child is and maybe they’ll come around.
3. Involve your child: The problem may be that you haven’t had your child around enough. Take the little one out with you more so your significant other can see why your child is so amazing.
