My name is Amanda and i am a single mother of a beautiful one year old boy. He is always on the move and man i wish i can scoop up some of his energy. I need some advice, i am going through some difficult stuff and an outsiders view always seems to give some better insight! My sons father is in the picture but there are reasons medically or mentally keeping him from being a full potential father. anyway i had to move back with my mother, which has had a rough past with. She is trying to control my son and she makes me feel like im not a good mom. By saying he needs to eat, and he has a wet diaper, like i wont do it. I have been on my own with my son, and we have our own routine but apparently its not good enough. On top of that my father has tried to call Department of Human Services on me 2 times now. They think im am unfit parent. But the caseworker who has contacted me has no concerns and they dont even have enough grounds to make as assessment let alone a case. It just hurts that ur own blood family would do this. Its getting harder to be motivated and feel good about myself. So any comments would help at this point.
