    Being a single mother is one thing

    but being an only parent is a whole other thing. The father of my children would rather be out using drugs then caring for his children. I am sometimes afraid that me alone is not good enough for my kiddos

    I am a single mother.

    I got raped when I was 14 and gave birth to my daughter when I was 15. At the time my mom made me call her dad, Conner. He abused both of us so I left to live with my sister when I was 16. She was a drug addict and was also pregnant at the time. She stopped using while she was...

    Dear "single Dads".

    First, I should preface this by pointing out that I put the words "Single Dads" in quotations. The reason for this will be explained shortly, but I don't want anyone to think that I'm making a blanketed remark about all single fathers. I know that there are some single parent...

    I Can't Do This All Alone. Can I?

    So, I moved back to my hometown after leaving my husband. I thought for a long time that I would stay in the town where he and I lived together (no family of either of us there). But I always hated living there, and he is passive-aggressive and emotionally abusive. My mother said...

    Single mothers are looked down upon

    for being in a relationship? Not all single mothers are looking for a guy, to replace daddy. Single mothers need love too. What's wrong with that? Absolutely nothing. I'm a single mother. I am also in a relationship. My SO is not trying to replace my child's father. Even though...

    old daughter. I love her with every fiber of my being and wouldn't trade a moment with her for anything. I've found life is much easier and more enjoyable when you're in an environment where there's not tension and constant fighting. Her father is the type of person that will...

    “He’s changed,” is the line I was told

    for many, many years. I’ve learned last year that he has not changed. Matter of fact, he’s acquired more negative ‘aspects.’ I am angry that I have been lied to for so many years, and I am angry that my son has been manipulated by them to become against me. His dad has...

    I'm A Single Mom

    Our daughter was nine years old when I decided I'd best get away from her father. Not that he's out of her life, I wouldn't want him to, because he's her dad and will always be. Just because I hate his guts doesn't mean she can't see him. After I broke up, we crashed into my...
