I wanted a family for my son, like any other mother would want. How the hell could anyone say that as a generalization? Some mother’s genuinely need the help from the government and that is alright. Let me be clear: No mother is going to have a damn child for child support checks. Raising a child takes time, energy, attention and last of all money. Patience to give the father time to make things right by supporting his child. So how about giving us a helping hand instead of a slap in the face? We’re just looking for the next man to care for our child.
Life didn’t work out the way I planned and that’s that. What I hate are the stereotypes that come with being a single mother. I know some mothers who are single because the father passed away. Every woman’s story is different and you should take the time to listen to them before making yourself look like an ass. There is nothing easy about raising a child alone, and certainly dating and a sex life are last on our list. So if you think that catching our attention, showing us that you are worth our time, waiting for us to arrange a sitter and making a good enough impression on us AND our kid is easy, then sure. When that happens, 99% of us work hard and get off as soon as we can. When our time and patience runs out, the courts have to intervene and make him pay. Just sit back and think about that assumption for a minute.
As a mom, you’re wired to put your children before yourself. But like they tell you on airplanes, you can’t help anyone with their oxygen mask until you put your own on.
You read books on how to give birth and how to breastfeed, but learning how to date when you have a child seems much more complicated.It’s a spunky, sexy, and moving chronicle of the humor, pitfalls, and rewards of balancing it all — single-mom style.The charming CBS 5 News reporter Joe Vasquez tracked my single mom friends and me down during our weekly "Girls' Night." A new study was just released - about the new surge of unmarried moms - and he wanted to talk to a local single mom.Truth is, we single moms rarely get what we deserve: a medal for doing twice the work and dealing with ignorant people shunning us for picking up the pieces and carrying on. That is how “child support” happens and that is not our fault. Why the hell would we want another man to take care of our child when we already have one who doesn’t? What do you expect when we only have one person bringing home an income? We hate the fact that they put us in this situation. We saw something there that made us want to have a child with him. Most of us single moms work double-time at parenting to make sure this happens.Sponsored Products are advertisements for products sold by merchants on
