The Downside of single parenthood

September 14, 2007 at 8:50 pm 1 comment

I was asked what it was recently and struggled to find it.

I make my own decisions – if I spend too much I deal with it. If I want something I don’t have to ask anyone but myself if I want to paint my bedroom purple I can etc etc etc…

Yes I don’t have have that comfort and support of a special person but lets face it if I had that before I wouldn’t be single now.

But there is a downside and it is lack of CONTROL.

I have little/no control once those kids go off with daddy.

If I think that he shouldn’t take 3 kids to see the ninja turtle movie I have no say in it as I don’t know until after the fact. I don’t know what they do or what they eat or if they are in adequate car seats. I can’t protect them and keep them safe…

    Oh it’s so so hard! My sister went thru the samew thing when her daughter used to go on access visits with her Dad up to the country where he lived. So it involved lots of long driving and she would just be so on edge until she arrived home safely. And yeh its also hard re the inappropriateness of some movies or situations that you dont even know about until after the fact.
    I feel for you Jude
