Raising children can make it difficult for single fathers to get back into the dating scene. With sympathy and good sense, journalist Fisher (Mom, There's a Man in the Kitchen and He's Wearing Your Robe
) and psychologist Halpern remind men that children are impressionable and easily confused, so proper etiquette is vital. The authors explain how to balance time between kids and a love interest, when to introduce them and how to handle the fallout if things don't go well. (Jan. 29)
