  2. I’m glad to be of encouragement to you Marie. I’ve been there too. Although I didn’t have 5 kids, just 3. But all 3 turned out to be great adults. One is a manager of a bar/restaurant. One is a manager of a hair salon and one is in college studying to be an engineer.

    All you can do is the best you can do. Your kids don’t expect perfection.

  3. I have been a single mum to my daughter for the last 12 years and i can assure you i have more than provided for her. In fact, i’d go as far as saying she’s probably had a lot more support than a lot of her friends who come form a two parent home. You post quotes “not able to provide everything for your child. In other words you cannot be the father and mother for your child”!!!! What an insult to single mums out there. I would say i have probably overcompensated for the fact my daughter dosent have a dad in her life. She’s confident, academic sporty and in fact she’s reprensentated her country in gymnastics so i have so say i find this statement rather insulting and way of the mark!!!!!

    Can someone pleeeeeeese point me to some positive single mum websites and no i’m not ones that assume every single mum is looking for the one – WTF is that all about. Give me a break!!
