Not being in a bad relationship. The feeling of independence.

2.  What do you think is the WORST part of being a single parent?

Not really worst but hardest is dealing with the ex and having to 'share' my child. Thankfully that has been getting easier.

The worst would be the stress over money.  A two-income household would make things easier.

1. I love making all the decisions and doing what I want. I also love getting all the hugs, kisses, and I love yous!!

2. The financial aspect, at the moment. I have decided to change that and go back to school so I can do better for my kids, and myself.

1. The best to me(as my kids dad is NOT in the picture) is not having to share them with anyone. I can make all the decisions regarding everything, and not have to worry about fighting with someone over those decisions.

2. The worst, like someone else said, to me is financial. I have a child support order, but he doesn't pay, and never has. Sooo, it's all on me. but like PP said, I decided to go to school to change it, so go us!!

1) i dont have to make sure that my partner and i agree on how to raise my daughter. NO ONE tells me how to do it. i make all the decisions 100% (aside from my damn mother,father,sister,brother,sisterinlaw, but thats another story, and as soon as i graduate, ill be out of this damn abusive household)

2) im all alone...which means no love for me (outside of my DD of course) and no intamacy, and no partner to help with the difficult times.

the best is not having to share my kids or discuss how to raise them. the worst is not having help or getting a break. i'm with my children 24/7, they even follow me to the bathroom, lol

the best thing is not being treated like a slave, and the worst is the unpredictability.
