Single Moms Single Moms

is it normal to love your child and regret them

Posted by   + Show Post
I have a 2year old daughter. I am a single mother, her father is not around as much as he should be. I work full time and I go to school fulltime. I also pay for daycare which is 700 a month and to be honest i hate paying for it but i have no choice because its hard finding a baby sitter. Well long story short i love her to death it just seems like i cant deal with all the sacrafices of being a mom. Ive missed so many days of school because she was sick, i cant get an apartment because i pay for her school/ her everything. I want to give her up for adoption but i know i cant do it because my love is too strong. Is it normal to feel this way? Sometimes i hate being around her when she have tempertantrums, is that normal? Why would a mother feel this way,,,do anyone have any advice for me because im not happy.

Same here. You can get child care help through the public assistance office. Here's 2 websites for billions of dollars in grants and scholarships

Being single is SO hard! I am and daycare is the reason I can't get a place as well. Mine is $620+ $55 for his preschool. He has to go somewhere so I can work. Next year he'll be in K, and that will be a HUGE financial burden that's gone! Do you have family or friends who can watch her for a few hours? You need a breather every once in a while. My youngest is special needs and it 's so stressful, so I get you. Their dad has them every other weekend, so even though it's not as much as he should, I do get some me time. You aren't alone. We all have days we feel like we will crack. Just keep going.
