Mabibilang lang siguro the number of people who really want to become solo parents right from the start. Majority of the millions of solo parents (there's about 14 million solo parents in the country, according National Institutes of Health data) probably became solo parents because of the various circumstances in their lives, and not by choice.

So I just wanna clear things out about getting financial support from Xavy's dad. Coz some of his friends and family seem to think he's being "responsible" and all and I am the one keeping his son away from him. Although yes, I don't want Xavy growing up with the kind of environment his family [...]
It's been crazy these past days, I had to juggle 3 jobs at the same time - one full time job and 2 online jobs. Hans' father only gives 5k a month, not even half of Hans expenses. And I got so pissed this month because he's weeks delayed with his financial support.This week has [...]

So after Xavier's dad left and his family has openly accepted that he's fucking the second cousin, I have decided to take things legally. Of course I will not allow Xavier to grow up in a screwed up environment thinking that it's okay to fuck your second cousin (and yes I have proof that they [...]

Out of everything they miss from before kids—a better body, more disposable income, time with friends—23% of moms [...]
How do successful single parents keep it all together? Yes, one of the fears of single parenting is keeping it all together and making sure I raise my boy into a good man. Will I be able to raise a son who would respect women and treat them like a gentleman, someone who has his [...]
I never met my father. He abandoned my mom days after I was born. As I got older and understood more about life, resentment and anger eventually crept in - feelings that could have led me down the wrong path in life, if it wasn't for my amazing mother.A single mom that pulled double duty [...]
Dads are fundamentally important to their kids. Good or bad, living at home or living away, alive or dead, happy or sad - every dad matters and has a huge influence on his kids' development. The relationship children have with their father affects their self-esteem, how well they do at school, even whether they are [...]
