    My Mom

    My mom became a single mother in 1968 when my dad walked out of the door for the last time. At 7 years of age, I don't remember enough to know who was in the wrong, but I do know that after that moment, never again would I have a father in my life. Mom drove a school bus and...

    Saw A Thread On Google

    A man had a discussion topic on this site which was the reason I signed up. His title, "never, never, never date a single mother" pulled me right in. After the first line, "men who date single mothers are desperate with no self worth" I couldn't believe my eyes. I know some...

    I definitely admire single mothers

    because I got pregnant at 15 and had children at age 16. I was not married and pregnant then. My boyfriend left me and I was all alone except for my family. My folks did support my efforts though and I thank them for that. I struggled with kids and going to high school then...

    I Am A Single Mother.

    I am a single mother and it is no easy task.I did not ask for the father of my child to be unfaithful, emotionally & mentally abusive, or unloving towards myself or my daughter. A choice was to be made, and he was removed from my life. More importantly, my daughter's because of...

    I admire single mother

    because my mom is a single mother and she works so hard to support me and my two brothers. She always supports my dreams and helped me get art supplies so I can draw. She may be single but she the best. And I think it's amazing of her and other single mothers! They just go...

    I dated a few single mothers

    and ultimately married one. I can say to anyone considering going out with a single mother, it is not for the immature: 1. The children will dictate most everything you do. That's just the way it is. Can't get alone time? Tough. Had plans and now a kid is sick? That's...

    For Sure!! I am blessed,

    thankfully, with 2 great parents but that's not the norm for every person.... I see a society that sneers at single parents, especially mothers, as just wasters or *****..... Is the woman always to blame for the breakdown of a family unit? No! It takes two to tango, sweetie...

    Big props go out to those single mothers out

    there. They've got to be the father and mother of the family and that has got to be sooo tough. Not only that, but single mothers are mostly frowned upon and so they have to deal with that social stigma everyday. I know I would have a really tough go of it myself, so to those...
