Why do we get put down?

I'm a single mom and I live at home. Yeah it sucks it's not where I want to be but I'm in school trying to make a better life for my dd and I. When I talk bout things on here and mention I live at hosmenj get so much shit for it. Like it is so damn easy to move out on your own with a kid and no degree. I pay for a lot of mynown stuff. No one gives us single moms enough credit for what we go thru. There might be other single moms that aren't makin an effort but a lot of us are so don't be so judgemental. If it was so easy to be on my own I wouldve done it a long time ago.

K I'm done venting now lol

  • People love to be judgmental over things they have no idea about. Even other single moms are critical. As you can see. There is always that one that is better than you are.

  • What ever! They are stupid. Do the best for you and your daughter. I never feel the need to bash people. Keep up the good work. My niece was a single mom living at home and going to nursing school. Don't regret making a future for your self. It is hard work and you will reap the benefits.

  • I have learned not to take anything on here personal. People take things all out of context and blow things out of proportion. So I take it in stride.

  • Some people have nothing better to do than judge others. I'm in the same situation with you, I am a single mother and I live with my father.. not because I choose too but because it makes alot more sense for me to live here while finishing school and working towards a set career where I can then move out on my own and support both my son and I. For those who manage to live on their own while being a single mom, kudos to you it's not so easy for some.

  • Are u divorced? Does the father help?

    I've never been married and he rarely helps. He's not around. Of course life isn't easy but I get bashed for being a single mom living at home and that's just the best I can do at the moment.

  • Right now in life with your parents is the best place. Don't worry about it, economically many of them may end up living with family as well. Good luck.
