What do I do?

Ok well my my SO left today so on November 15th I will be a single mom to wonderful little boy. How do I handle this? How am I suppose to juggle being a mom and a student and find a job to support me and my little man? All of you single moms how do you do it? I really could use some advice right now. Please be nice :)

  • If you live by family see if they will trade childcare for housework or something. You'll save tons on childcare without feeling guilty.

  • You can do Gurl! I'm a single mom of 3.I go to school,looking for work,and I babysit my friends kids a couple days out of the week for extra money.Take a couple classes at the skool and a couple classes online so u can b with your lil one.How old is he anyways? At your school see if you can get approved for any programs for daycare if they have any and if they have any for single parents.Where I live we have a couple programs that give money you don't pay back depending how many units u take for being a single parent called EOP/CARE and they also help with skool supplies,parking permits and a few other things and also daycare on campus or off campus.Also apply for assistance like cash aid for u and ur son,gives u some extra cash till u find job. just some ideas. Good Luck..
