Single mother in today's world

4 years ago

 Dear readers Im a single mother of 22 with a 6 year old daughter. My marriage broke up about two years ago when i decided to go and live with my mother.  since then i have managed to get a house, of course only rental and find employment. still the question comes to mind why do young or single mothers still get so much critisism in this day and age when its all so common. my daughter is one of the brightest students in her class she is fed well and has excelent manners. people need to realise that just because someone is single or young is does not make them a bad mother. I read things in the paper and see on the news about paerents neglecting there children and all sorts yet the critisims still goes out mostly to single or young mothers. its something ive learnt to live with myself although i noticed being spoken to like your inexperiaced or inadequet has occured alot more since my divorce. all i ask is that people who do make these assumestions think about them before judging. there is no manual with parenting its something you have to learn whenever it comes.
