Hi guys just sending a hello from Essex single mumma to 3 beautiful children here .. I was recommended this site so thought I would give it a go have a chat, laugh or even cry with like minded people😊😊 being a parent is the hardest job but even harder if your a single parent.. we are all warriors raising amazing little humans !! So I think having this space is a god send for moments when I feel like I’m going insane at Least I know I won’t be by myself!!
Joined this sight a few months ago, its been a Godsend, knowing you are not on your own, and to be able to chat to people who understand kept me going through the bad days. I am a dad to five children, aged 7,10,12,15,and 18, who live with me.
I’m new to this site too, though also not a newly lone parent. I wish I’d found this site sooner. I live in an area where there aren’t that many lone parents and this site really helps you to realise that you are not alone. You can connect with others, share info, be supported, and offer support. There is strength in numbers. Most lone parents experience and struggle with similar issues. It can be a hard road to tread, but my two girls are amazing and I would not swap my life with them. This site gives lone parents a space and a voice. I’m hopeful that organisations like gingerbread will help to make our society are a fairer and happier place for our children 😀😀🌈 optimist … I guess
