Dear Fonseca

A new year means a 'new me'. I am finally ready to start dating. My family and I are arguing over my dating profile because I posted pictures of my children. They say it's wrong to do that. I disagree and believe it's best to be completely honest about having kids and how much they are a part of my life. Should pictures of your children be posted on a dating website?
