How does a single mom do it?

My husband is the greatest help in the world to me. I just can't imagine doing it alone....I feel so bad for all the single moms out there.

  • I Have a very helpful husband as well, thank God, so I couldn't imagine having to do it on my own! But I also know that as a mom I would go to the end of the world and beyond for my son and being a mommy can be a hard job at times, but we do what we have to do. And if I were a single mom it we be double the work load this I know, but u have no choice but to do it! Props to all mothers out there and double props to the ones doing it on their own :)

  • You don't think about it really, having someone to help is a luxury not a necessity. We just do what we have to for our little people.

  • One day at a time & one paycheck at a time...
    But seeing my kids grow up to be great productive citizens, despite their fathers being an add...

  • Stay strong moms (Single and married). Just raising kids at all is a challenge.

  • You shouldn't. It's better to be single mom, then a married mom, who's husband not only non supportive in parenting, but also disturbs the righteous parenting path.
