This will probably be long so thank you for reading and helping.

I'm 38 with a teenager and BF is 52 with an 11 year old in another state.

Welcome to the board, Allismom8 ~

Boy, you have several issues bundled up here; some that, in a perfect world, should be addressed now, and some that just need time to resolve.

The more I think about what your boyfriend's son has been through, the more sense it makes that seeing dad date right now may be very counterproductive to him.

BF's son would have no way of seeing his Dad date right now.

I disagree with the psychologist's advise.

I don't think you can start the timer at one year from when his mom died.
