Single moms!

Your children are at risk, 33% greater risk of being abused, sexually or physically. Be very careful who you date, and who you leave your children alone with!

Question, do you believe this or no? (sorry had to make it a question) really it's just a public service announcement! lol

  • i have chosen not to date and be a mom to my kids, I'll have time for dating when they're older. In high school going our with their friends, as well. I'm very selective of even my co-workers who interact with my kids.

  • Right, but it makes sense to me that your kids are at a higher risk when you are having men in and out of your life. Some child predators date single moms just to get at kids, easy access unfortunately!

  • Hmm.

  • To a certain extent I agree. A dating mom will be in contact with more men than a married mom (ideally, lol) and heir children will be exposed to those new relationships.
    But I also think that a responsible woman will be more careful of whom she dates and there's no reason to suggest that ALL unmarried women are at a risk of bringing home an abuser. We're too paranoid. The vast majority of men are not suck pedophile abusers. Let's keep it real

  • No abuse happens under all parents noses!

  • I would want to have the source and question it seriously unless I had multiple and varied sources. Certainly the more people your child is left alone with and the quality of the people (not economic status but type) will affect the risks.
