When you date someone who has a child, they can feel that their life has more "weight" than yours -- like you should do whatever they want to do based on their schedules and needs.

If he doesn't do anything about it if it happens again, go straight to the kid. (And I can hear the parents recoiling that the childless girl is suggesting it! She not only gave vows to her new husband, she also gave vows to her new stepson.Abiodun Oyebode, had insisted on going a date with one of her male friends, despite her mother’s refusal.Oyebode, who is sometimes referred to as ‘Margaret Thatcher’ by some pupils in her school, because of her strict mien, said she literally had to lock all the doors in her house to prevent her daughter, Josephine, from leaving the premises.
