Dating a single parent relationships slena gomez dating
Depression, suicide, drug abuse, jail and psychiatric medications are all more common in populations of children raised by single mothers. journalid=37&articleid=107§ionid=692 Ladies, this is why abortion exists!
Children of single mothers do poorly on every imaginable scale: they have more emotional problems, experience more stress, are more likely to grow up poor, they have lower educational achievements and experience way more behavioral problems than children who grow up with married parents.
However, I now approach relationships and dating with a different mindset than before becoming a mother.
I remember saying to my mom that I didn’t know anyone else who was divorced, single parenting and dating.
They either convince themselves they are better off not going beyond getting their feet wet (at best) or they deny and minimize their fears, which can lead to making reckless plunges. Well, the chronically painful realities of divorce that involve children may be likened to having a chronic and debilitating illness like arthritis.
Instead of periodic flare ups of painful inflammation of muscles and joints we are left dealing with periodic flare ups of our children’s painful struggles to come to terms with our divorces, flare ups of our own painful struggles to come to terms with divorce and episodic painful dealings with our divorced spouses.
Gazing back into those beautiful eyes of your child, you suddenly are flooded with memories of your parents being overprotective and giving you a hard time. You understand because you would do literally anything to protect your child from ever feeling any type of pain. So, what happens when you decide you're ready for dating, a new relationship or maybe even love?
Life as you know it changes once you hold that tiny bundle of joy in your arms. Sometimes marriages or relationships don't work out, but things do work out for the best. Luckily, the relationship with your child never ends.
