Do you talk about Your Children on a First Date?

Hi, I’m a single mom and I always want to be open and honest on a first date, but I also don't want to scare my date off by talking about my kids too much. I don’t even know if it’s okay to mention that I have kids on the first date. Whenever I go on a date I often struggle with what to say (and how much to say) about my children, especially on a first date. On one hand, I want to give my date a chance to get to know me as an individual; on the other hand, my children are an important part of my life and I feel it’s important that my date knows that I’m a single mom from the onset. What do you think? Is it okay to talk about my kids on a first date or do I wait until we get to know each other a bit?

It’s okay to talk about your kids on your first date so you know how he will react instead of you keeping it from him later then when he found out he will be angry or fade up
