I am a single parent. My son is now 15 and he lives with me. He always has. It has been very tough. I am sick so I cannot work, and we are only getting child support right now. He seems to understand though. My ex husband dosent hardly help at all. He pays the support, but that is all. If he buys him something, it goes to his house. He is remarried (to the woman he was cheating on me with) and his wife does not treat my son good at all. My son hates her. We are stuck living in an apartment while he owns his own house. In the same city. No one knows how hard it is. We have to live on rental assistance because rent is so expensive. I don't know how other single moms do it. I don't have a boyfriend. I have been alone for 10 years since the divorce. And now I cant work. So it is a very bad situation. If I was well, I could work and things would be better. But you cant help what your body does to you. Well sorry about going on.

It's so difficult for a single parent especially for a mom. And I know there is some slighting on women in some countries. So they may be much more difficult. I hope you are lucky and have a well health. Your child needs you. And your child will help you soon after he is mature. God will bless us.

I have friends that are single parent,and is really not an easy task,(especially if you are financially unstable)between parenting, work and being the cook, maid and running errands not to mention homework and support of the little one. and they fill it hard time balancing dating with life, Single parent is much appreciated. Some just don't need a man to make them, kids are their life and love looking threw there eyes and learning from them...

I am married, but most of the time it is as if I am a single parent. I am a military wife, with three children, and my husband is deployed more than he's home and it's for 15 months at a time. So, I do consider myself to be a single parent most of the time. It's very difficult at times, but I get through it day by day. Most days are really great and I love being there for my children, but there are days that I really resent my husband for not being here to help raise our children. You do what you have to do though like...making fun projects for you and the kids to do together, or going places to do things with them or just spending extra time at home just being a family. You make it good or bad, just depends on how you look at it. God bless

[i]Hi monish, I've met a lot of single Parents and they are happy about it and they are enjoying having their kid or kids.. I guess it is better to be a single parent when the couple will not have a harmonious relationship![/i]

There is nothing wrong with being a single parent you can't make anyone stay in a relationship but your children are yours and you have to take care of them no matter what.

I was a single parent for a year. My fiance and i got back together. In that year though it was quite a struggle. I don't see nothing wrong with being a single parent. I think it makes you stronger and wiser. I think it is tough. Its something no one should have to face. When i faced it i had no job and nothing really to help.
