    Dating someone with a kid

    So I’m very new to this forum so I apologize if this has been discussed before.

    I’m 32 years old and started dating one of my best friends of 10 years. Things are great. We get along, were sexually compatible, and always have fun together.

    She has a 3 1/2 year old. He’s a bundle of energy and a cool kid, but he hates me. He even hit me the other day.

    I don’t dislike kids. I do genuinely want to be part of his life. I’m just looking for any advice since this is the first time I have dated someone with a kid.

    Little bit of background:

    Mom is more of the disciplinarian. She tries to set boundaries and routines. Dad tries to buy lots of gifts and be the “fun dad”. I understand parenting is probably a healthy combination of both. Knowing when to have fun and knowing when to more of “the boss”.

    Thanks in advance
