  • Because no one promised us an easy life. They just promised it would be worth it. It's ALL part of being an adult and a parent. sorry.

  • Because many expect a "good life" to be handed to them. We have raised several generations of "I deserve" grown children instead of "I will work hard so I can have" adults.

    Life is not easy or fair but our choices can make things easier or harder for ourselves.

  • It took me 30 yrs to get child support from my kids' dead beat dad. I struggled rearing them alone. He thought when they turned 18 he'd get off scot free but I never dropped the case. He didn't bank on that. My son is 35, my daughters are 32 and 30 and I'm just now getting it. I learned a lot in my struggle to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. I had to depend on my kids to help me with bills when they were old enough to work. I felt bad about that but looking back it kept them busy and taught them a lot. They are all three hard working loving parents in stable relationships. I can't be upset or feel guilty about that. I'm very proud of them. Good can come of your situation as well. One day you will see the silver lining. Just hang in there. Hugs
