This is a great, and important piece, Holly.

I ran into this more times than I care to recall when my older kids were younger and I was dating. What was ironic to me then was, some of the guys who seemed to have the most problems with it were parents too!

I had one guy confess to me he just couldn’t get in the mood when my son was home (sleeping in the other room) because he thought of his ex doing the same thing and it made him angry.

Um, dude. She has the right to a sex life, too.

I dropped him like a hot potato.
