What do you ladies think...

Someone posted this in Facebook. What do you ladies think? I don't agree. My ex pays child support but is inconsistent in his presence in our children's lives. I call myself a single mom all the time.

I think it's redundant... single woman with children= a single mother

I agree. I'm single and a mom, therefore I a single mom.

I don't think it should be a competition - who has it worse - all that becomes is a race to the bottom. But given the link on the pic, it kind of sounds like a bitter SM came up with that one.

Whoever wrote that is seriously retarded. Single mom has nothing to do with financial issues. It's a mother who's not with the father of her kids.

A "friend" sent this to me via Facebook and said I need to stop calling myself a single mom since I get child support from my ex.

 Meeshmom has it correct.  Never heard of a married mom.  Married woman with kids yeah, but not a married mom.  Eww that just sticks. lol

I say bullshit. Just because they can does not mean they do. There are different types of single moms just like their are different types of single dad's. We all face different and similar challenges. It isn't a contest of who has it harder.

"Able to" and "willing to" are two different things.

He is "able to" care for her because he has two other children younger than her with another woman who he does provide for. He does pay his $12.50 per week in child support ... Whoo hoo ... But I'm still a single mother.
