I need HELP! Raising my daughter bymyself is getting too hard! When is it safe to let another guy step in and help?

i havn't been with my baby's daddy since i was pregnant...( she's 19 mo) and i am with another guy (since she was 12 mo)...Raising her by myself is getting too hard... what do i do now?The dad is an out of town worker ( 6 or more weeks at a time) and my boyfriend lives with me and is willing to help me because he sees my stress level...and he loves her, and i love and fully trust him.

  • then I would say let him be in her life. This man is willing to take the daddy role. You should be lucky.

  • only if he is going to be a permanent fixture in her life. othewise it isn't his place.

  • If he already lives with you and your child then he is already part of her life. So then how much you want him to assist you is up to you.
