    To clarify, a married single parent.

    To a man whose only responsibility is to take care of himself, and he really can't even do that. But anyway. I've always been the only caretaker, for my almost 20 year old and now my 2 year old. Not like it's anything new, except I didn't work full time when the oldest one was...

    Better Now

    I was married for 12 years. I've often felt that the person she sold me when I first met her was not the person she really was or had intended on becoming. Shortly after the birth of our first child, she left. Just decided she didn't want to be a wife and mother and left...

    I hate the other side of my child's family.

    I've never met such a selfish bunch of people in my entire life. They never helped me when she was small (and things were really a struggle back then), nor do they offer any real help now. It annoys me that they just prance in here and take her off for a few hours, acting like...

    Please don't join this group

    unless you're the DEFAULT parent. Paying child support, getting visiting rights or weekly time with your kid(s) etc DOES NOT make you a Single Parent. Please look up 'default parent' if you don't understand the term. Truth is, if you even have to think about it, you're NOT.
