Re: Singles Moms Support?

Would definitely benefit from such a thread...especially as my son gets older!

Re: Singles Moms Support?

I agree we need a separate forum for single parenting issues. There are unique issues to single parenting that the answers in the other forums can't always address.

Hi ladies. I'm a single mother to a 4 year old awesome boy. His father and I separated when he was 18 months and divorce was final when he was 3. His father and I have joint custody and DS goes to his house (he lives with his parents) when I work, so no daycare thank god.

I recently was pregnant with my boyfriend at the time but lost the baby. Then he left me, so we have been a huge mess lately!

Re: Singles Moms Support?

I'm a single mom, too. Happily divorced for 6 years now. My exhusband is not my son's father.... So no joint custody hassles but also no child support or help as i have no family here, in my ex's hometown... but I do have a teaching job here ( so I stay). I am a choice mom, and got pregnant on attempt #5 at the local fertility clinic and am really very happy being a mom, even if this is not at all how I had planned it. I dated a lot in the years after my divorce, and had hoped to find someone to be a good father to my son, but.... It just didn't happen. Anyhow, there are good things about being a single parent, even if it is lonely sometimes and stressful for childcare... I currently have a dcp that likes to leave signs on her door saying she'll be taking two days off next week. This is like the third time she's done this since I started him in daycare in April.
Ughh..... So now I am scrambling to find childcare for next Thurs and Friday. I'm leaving this dayhome at the end of this month... So stressful. I think it takes another single parent to really understand how stressful that is.
I try go congratulate myself as often as i can on what i am doing right. Like last night I got a flat tire on the way home at 9:00 pm in the rain, with my son in the car, and I managed to get it changed and got us home safely and him in bed by 10:30 ( sort of late, but hey). Anyhow, thanks for listening. I could use that piece of pie mentioned in the second or third post, now. LOL.

Re: Singles Moms Support?

I'm a single mother as well. I've never been partnered and I think it's easier making all the decisions on my own. The finances... well, we don't need to go there

Re: Singles Moms Support?

Hi! I'm a newly single mom, as of a month ago, with a 22 month old. It would be nice to have some forums around. I never would have thought I'd be a single mom, especially at my age, but people change and sometimes lie and it's best to move on, rather than be in a relationship and be treated badly.

I work full time, and go to school. Was full time, but I had to drop my classes this semester, because my mom totaled my car. She lives with us, and sometimes is a great help, but she is a horrible alcoholic, and often is more trouble than she is worth (and I hate saying that about my mom )
Can I come help you?

Being single, you don't have expectations of anyone but yourself.

Agreed to people change.

Not trying to spam but looking for support. As one other poster mentioned not single but sure feel like it 90 percent or more of the time or we are at each other...

.usually me at him as he is gripping & harping on little crap that doesnt matter or like kids are doing making time when he isnt around really nice & no one really seems to miss spouse.... many different things. just trying to find support & Im a stay at home parent so feeling very lost at what to do & where to go. I havent had a job that wasnt temp (3mo long).

I'm already behind!
Can you try to make appointments for right after class & find someone that could watch kid til then? I tried to do that & had friends I could have watch her in town so not 1hour drive to go get kid at the time. I know my state/ area/ college has emergency care so you could take exam at night or if kid was sick...

I have been a single parent with my oldest (10 year old). I have barely gotten support for her & ex wont work -not spouse yet in case it happens.
