Starting Over As A Father

I have a son and a daughter. Their mother and I split up when the kids were quite young, with my ex taking the kids 3000 miles away. Through a series of silly choices over the years, I had lost touch with my children and their mother.

Over the last year, their mother and I found one another again and, between many visits and hours per day spent on the phone, have fallen in love once more. I am planning on moving to where my kids are in about a month to be closer to them and their mother.

Am feeling a little apprehensive. My son is 14 and brilliant smart. My daughter is 8 and absolutely adorable. I am worried that they won't accept me or that I'll screw up as a 'new' dad all over again.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

be sure to let them love u before you try to disaplin them. when they aproach you always stop what your doing and listen. they will run off in a minute or two and you can get back to what your doing. so much more
