When parents split, no one knows how things will turn out. A child maybe blessed with a "working brokenly" situation while others are not so lucky. Being a single parent where the broken situation isn't working, it's scary as hell to know that no matter what you do you can't protect your child from possible hearbreaks, empty promises, and worse them blaming you out of anger because your the one that's there as the safety net. You can't help your child deal with the one thing they feel they need most, their other parent and though it maybe years before they reach that age of questioning, it's the scariest part of being a single parent in a nonworking broken situation. The worst part, is when they are babies you do what you feel is best and safest for them but then it becomes their reality as they become older. A reality you can't control or protect them from anymore. Only hope you succeed in making sure they know you love them and that they can always count on you.
(this is what happens when you watch a show too close to home... You start thinking of things thatnormally you try to avoid because its a waste of time to think about)
