Trails of a Single Mom… Oh, How I hate those words coming out of my mouth. I would like to say that being a single mom, that I have a great kid and he is always behaving. That would be a blessing. That is the picture that single parents try to let everyone think. If not we are faced with the state coming in and to just tell “Us” single parents what we are doing wrong. How does that help anyone. Most of the time the single parent that is being both mom and dad is having to double the work with half the time. Then to top it off if the child has disabilities it is even hard since you have to be both the good parent and the bad parent.
While I have both my parents, my two brother and a boyfriend that help at times – When the line is drawn in the sand on his behavior, that is me having to correct his behavior. I could not tell you how many times he has tolled me that he hates me, How I keep him away from his deadbeat dad that is in jail or that he does not love me anymore. All this for something that is childish as I took something away or tossed something away that he was.
