    Hope everyone is doing great!

    Afro Caribbean single parents .Are we out there or is there still a stigma of just getting on with it?

    It’s hard but it’s harder when we have no connections to positive outlooks.

    My friend is from the Caribbean and had a child whilst she was a single mother in London. She told me some people have traditional values, that a mother and father should raise a child. She told me, I did it by myself. She did not end up as a mass murder. She did a good job. Some single parents are Mum and Dad. I think everyone tries their hardest to survive. That is all we can do.

    I researched this subject. I can across this article:

    <span style=”color: #222222; font-family: ‘Indy Serif’, serif; font-size: 19px;”>”Attitudes in Britain have changed over the years when it comes to single-parenting, yet the idea still generates an atmosphere of moral condemnation in much of the public discussion. The Caribbean community tends not to share that attitude. For black people with roots in the Caribbean, the family has different meanings from those which have prevailed in British society…”</span>

    I hope that helps,

    Thanks, Katherine,
