    It seems there is a theme running through a lot of these forums. People are searching for support, advice, listening ears and friends but ive kind of got a feeling a lot are searching for someone to date. A lot of single parents are single people has anyone thought the same. Just a general observation

    Your right, we are here just as much because we are single as we are parents.

    Lockdown isn’t helping.

    On the plus side, my 7-year-old is full of energy and nothing seems to stop him 🙂

    I am lucky, am a self-employed and work from home. I’ve set up a second desk by my desk, so Daniel (my 7-year-old) can sit by me doing his school work as I do my job (I think I am going to miss him when the schools restart).

    Also, something for you to look forward to as yours gets older – mine loves helping around the house, loading the dishwasher and washing machine (under supervision!), dusting, buttering the toast for breakfast, watering the garden and feeding the dog.

    Sadly he isn’t yet tall enough to wash the car 😉

    How are you finding lockdown?

    I don’t know if I’m the opposite of what’s on here but I came looking only for friends. And specifically people who understand pressures of being a single parent. I’ve only joined recently but found it so reassuring and moving reading other people’s stories. Didn’t realise so many single parents all feeling this way. Sometimes I feel like the only single parent – but I am the only one I know! And during lockdown the world has felt so full of couples and families. You hear so much about elderly people being lonely but not nearly as much about single parents.
    Anyway sorry to interrupt the conversation.

    Btw I think that sounds really quite lovely routine you’ve got going Steve with your son. You’ve clearly got him well trained.

    Hey Steve my son is also very good like that. He helps make his bed, he puts things away, he puts stuff in the bin for me, he switches washing machine off, loads dryer, loves it, he puts his table and chair back and he is very good too

    I just find a lot of posts are about loneliness and about exs. We all have an ex and we all hurt just hope we can all see better times ahead. We are all doing fab and lockdown really doesnt help but not a lot we can do
