I need advice from you single moms with only one child, particulary a boy that would be between the ages of 8-10. I am having a huge problem with him not being able to keep himself entertained and he claims he is bored all the time. He wants to go somewhere. His biggest complaint is he wants kids to play with, which I can understand because I am an only child. It is becoming very frustrating. I give him things to do but he is not satisified. HIs dad is not in the picture unless I make the move to get my son to him. It has been 2 years since his father and I have not been together and I am really trying to make a new life for us. I am finding it to be very difficult to get into routines and new traditions. I am still sort of struggling with letting go and starting new so how in the world can I get my son out of old habits and look beyond how it use to be??
I work full time so I am very tired when I get home and when possible on the weekends I want to relax. I know that being a mom is a sacrifice and I need to have time with my son. How do you ladies balance it out??
