I don't know if any of you listened to Dr. Laura when she was on the radio(i think that woman is some kind of bi-polar but I loved her show!) but a lot of women would call in with young children and *gasp!* dating problems.
Dr. Laura always had a very strict policy when it comes to having young children (and that's any child under the age of 18) and dating: don't.
It was her opinion (in much more blatant terms) that if you're irresponsible enough to have children with a man that you felt you couldn't be together with then you weren't responsible enough to try dating another man. She felt it was best for the child's mental health that they concentrate on the children and not at all on their romantic fancies.
What do you think? Should single moms wait to date?
