    Hello Moms! I have an 11 year old son. He has always been the sweetest, caring, protective angel I dreamed of. Over the past few months he spends a lot of time on games. I just opened a business far from his school so i allowed him to have more gaming time as I am trying to get our businesses...

    Hi :-) I’m Brandy, a 1st time mom to be, currently living alone in Louisville. I’m 5 months into this pregnancy (nothing was planned). I live very far from most of my friends and family so I’m searching for ladies in or near my area who’d like to connect, chat, and become friends <3 hope to...

    Hey y’all! I’m BSonja! I’m a 39 year old single mother expecting my second child in April! By way of background I have a 20 year old daughter who I raised as a single mother who’s about to go on her own single mother journey (due in October)! Five years ago I ended a toxic relationship only to...

    Hello, is there any mom’s that share joint custody with the other parent ? I have a 3 year old daughter who is currently visiting her father for the summer. I am the primary parent and my daughter has never been away from me for weeks at a time. I can no longer communicate with her father’s...

    I'm new to this, and I'm not yet a single parent, and wouldn't really be even after. My situation is complicated. And that's putting it lightly. My husband and I have been separated for over a year now. During that time I met a guy, well actually I had met him before but decided to actually get...

    A working mother shares her advice for practicing attachment parenting while holding down a full-time job - and staying (somewhat) sane through it all. On the day of my first big promotion, I sat in my office with a clove of garlic stuck up my vagina. I was very pregnant with my first child...
  10. Family Life
    The face of family in America has changed dramatically over the last several decades. Single motherhood is on the decline, but not for reasons that you might think. It's safe to say that the concept of a "traditional family" has shifted significantly in the last half-century. While fifty years...

    Motherhood is hard enough when sharing the responsibility with a partner, but how about being a widowed mother of five children and putting yourself through law school? That's just what 33-year-old Ieshia Champs did. In a now-viral photograph, a graduation-gowned Champs is pictured with her...
  12. Single Parenting
    Hi all, I'm new to this. I am a divorced mother of a beautiful 2 year old boy. His father and I have 50/50 custody, which isn't what I wanted but my attorney suggested it because that's most likely what the judge would order, per attorney. Afraid of getting less, I avoided going to court and...
  13. Family Life
    It has only been six weeks since we left home and my husband, but it feels like six months. My one-year-old son's world was thrown upside down when we moved to the other side of the world without Daddy. The separation is temporary but nevertheless, both of us are struggling to adapt. Our sleep...

    I help and advice... My ex wants his fiancé to attend DS's student lead conference. This will be the first school conference that my ex has attended in 5 years. I have spoken with DS and he has voiced that he doesn't want his dads fiancé there. I have not told my DS that I don't feel comfortable...

    When I became a parent, I thought the days of awkward dating were behind me. You see, no one told me about the play dates: the set-ups, the high hopes, the awkward conversations, and the disappointments. I hadn't left the world of dating after all - and this time around, it was worse because I...
  16. Family Life
    Sometimes I wonder how my life would look if I never had kids. This isn't an idle, passing thought. I fantasize about it with the relish of Scrooge McDuck rolling around joyously in his piles of money. The other morning, sleep bun askew and pillow creases on my face, I made my kids their...

    I am not the mother I thought I'd be. 'That' mother is glossy, smiley and perky. She knows how to make healthy meals, fast. She's well adjusted and well groomed - the envy of other moms. Me, though, I'm a royal shit show. I thought that the more experienced I became at this mothering thing, the...

    Parenting is a beast of a job and, sometimes, it can feel like you're doing it alone. But, it doesn't need to be that way. Every mom needs a village of care. I thought being a modern mom meant not only doing it all on your own, but doing it well. "I can do this," I would think. "I'm a smart...
  19. Family Life
    When I was ready to start dating again after my marriage ended, I knew I wanted to start out on the right communication path in any new relationship I entered. I had developed some bad habits in my marriage and didn't want to make the same mistakes the second time around. Although I don't...
