Hello ladies I'm Jessica 26 years old and from a small northern town in Michigan called Wolverine. I'm a single mother to my amazing seven year old son Scotty. I'm been a single mom since I was 4 months pregnant with my son because his dad wasn't ready for the responsibility of being a dad so I decided it was the best for me to just raise him on my own. I'm hoping to make some really good friends on here hope you all have a wonderful day :)

I jus recently became a single mother and I am still tryin to adjust on doin all ths on my own and learning how to deal wit my sons confusion on y mommy and daddy dont live together any more n y I have to tell him no whn hes crying for daddy. If anybody has any advice on how to deal wit these things I would greatly appreciate it and am open to ne and all suggestions on things to help my son to learn how cope wit the whole situation. My son has never known anything other than mommy and daddy always being together n all livinig n the same house. He was always very attached to his dad n I kno all ths has been super hard on him I cn c it n his behavior and emotions. I kno hes only fixn to b 2 but I kno n my heart that he knows things are different and that things are not the same that hes been used to his entire life. It breaks my heart everytime he crys for his dad or wakes up n the middle of the nite cryin for him n I have to tell him daddy isnt here n the look of confusion n not understandin on his face jus kills me n breaks my heart. So like I said if nebody has ne suggestions or any advice I would love to hear it plz im open to anything that will help n b benifital to my son n myself

Hi. I'm Kim and I'm a single mother to wonderful little boy whose 4.  We have been on our own since 2 weeks before he was born when his dad decided he didn't want us.  His dad has been in and out of our lives for the past 4 years and has now suddenly decided that he wants to have a steady relationship with my son.   My son is having a really hard time adjusting to this change in his routine and it looks like I am going to be forced to take legal action pretty soon.   My son is normally a happy smiling little boy but has been having mood swings and started having potty accidents.  I feel so terrible as there is nothing that I can do change this.

Hi Brandi, welcome (and happy birthday to Aiden)!  Does he spend any time with his dad since your breakup?

Hi Kim!  Welcome to the group.  I bet your little guy really is having a hard time.  Have you considered any sort of therapy to help him learn to adjust?
