    I’m a single dad with an 8 year old daughter. She’s lived with me since she was 3 as her mother is an alcoholic. Her mother’s family have nothing to do with her so I’m basically on my own apart from the help of my parents who are now retired so wanting to do their own thing. Any advice going?

    Hi adam123

    how do you get on with work? I’m fine until my parents aren’t available then there’s no one else but me to sort my daughter. I work with mostly older men where in their day it was up to the women to sort the children whilst the men went out to work so they don’t understand and I get a few snide comments if I have to have any time off

    It’s hard mate. Like I’ve said, I’ve got my parents but they’re both retired now. They’ve brought 4 lads up so they shouldn’t have to put their time on hold now because of me. I’ve tried childminders but she just won’t go, she’s seen a lot of domestic abuse with her mother and her partner so she’s very clingy
