  • I don't! My mom was a single mom with five kids to raise. I thank God everyday that she found my stepdad!

    Single moms have it twice as hard.

  • probably because those women have shitty men and have kids with them and want to leave but are afraid and so they put single mothers down to make themselves feel better....Don't let it get ya down girl keep your head held high and don't think twice about what ignorant people say especially ones who have never been in your shoes!!!!!hope this helps sweetie I am sure you are a great mother.

  • Single moms act like they are special.I think just being a Mom makes you elevated.. As a real mom you give up so much of yourself... Men may pay or be involved but women really are the ones affected by having children.

  • If someone looks down on you, then there are things in their own lives that need fixing. I am so sorry that some women treat you like that!

  • I don't. I look up to a lot of single moms. I don't know how they do it.
