How does it feel to be a single mom?

How does it feel to be a single mom? Is it hard to raise a child on your own.

I think it's really hard because you are the only raising your son/daughter. So sad for single moms. Click here to enlarge

Not sad at all!

Not all single moms are doing it on their own. Whether it be a good social network, close knit family, or any number of small blessings, things can be great.

My stbx is a huge part of DD's life. We say she has two parents 24/7, no matter who's house she is at. We work together to make sure everything she needs is taken care of and she has a wonderful, happy child hood, even if it is at two different homes. I often go to his house and hang out when she is there, and he does the same here.

I do get frustrated that I have so little time with her between working and her going to school and sharing split custody with her father. But she is thriving. That is what matters. I miss her terribly when she is not here, but that just me being selfish, which is not good for her.

Being a single parent pretty much feels like any other parent. There are even some married parents that have it harder. Extreme conflict with a spouse or living in an unhappy home can make things much worse.

Being a single Mom for almost three years was one of the hardest things I have ever endured in my life, but it made me stronger and gave me a deep respect for all of those single mothers out there struggling every day of their life. It can be exhausting and sometimes depressing and lonely. BUT...you have your beautiful child...and on those days when you do not feel you can take one more step, just remember...your child is the one you are continuing for. Have pride in yourself! Give yourself a break and do something special for yourself (no matter how small).
Finally, and most importantly, God will see you through this! With much prayer, God continues to bless my daughter and I. He loves you and will do the same for you and your family. He has plans for your life! When you are clenching your fists in fear or frustration, open them up and receive God's blessing.

Hello my dear, I can understand your problem because it is really a big challenge to become a single mum. When it comes to finding such time in your life, you will go through many physical and mental challenges every day. It depends on your financial condition and your locality that what environment you will find around you when you face the challenge to become a single mum. For some ladies, it is really hard and really difficult time to become a single mum. It is not easy to raise your son or daughter alone without the help of your partner. There are some other ladies who take it as a challenge and who like to become independent to take complete care of the child alone. It is very important that you can be positive and can have a good attitude towards life to become a happy single mother. You have to be strong internally to face this challenge of your life. If you are able to find happiness in small things with your baby, it will be very easy for you to spend your time as a single mum.
In this case, you will find some challenges for sure. It is very important to get help with your family members and friends to face such time. If you have a little baby then you will need services of any caretaker for it when you will go to job or work. It is not easy to face all these regular challenges for any lady but if you are internally strong and positive, you can easily spend this time with your baby happily. Best of luck for your future and always stay happy as a single mother.

I am a single mom and I can say that Iím absolutely happy. By the way, it was my choice. I decided that I would never get married again when my husband left me because of my infertility. He got married in 4 months after the divorce. I was destroyed. I still hate all men except my son. No, I didnít get pregnant. My son was born by the surrogate mother with the help of donor sperm.
I can say that thereís not any problem about being a single mom. Iím sure that my son will grow up as a real man. I spend a lot of time with him. We donít have a nanny. My mother lives in the neighbourhood. She often helps me about the house. Sometimes she takes my son for a walk to give me some free time. I donít need time to go for a date but sometimes I need time to stay alone. I love reading and watching good movies. I usually do it when my son is sleeping.
I am working from home. So, I have a lot of free time to spend it with my son. I think every woman can raise a child alone. It is not hard at all. When I was married I had to take care of my husband. He didnít cook, didnít clean the house and didnít earn a lot of money. So, why do I need a man? To take care not just of my son but also of a man? Sounds terrible. I am an independent woman and I can take care of my son. Iím sure that Iím strong enough to give him everything he needs. I know that he loves me and I am the most important person in his life. I donít want to share his love with anyone else.
