What's the biggest misconception people have about single parenting?
When it comes to parenting, it's more a matter of quality over quantity. I hate it when children from single-parent homes are automatically considered "at risk". My kids may only have one parent, but they are far from neglected. They are surrounded by people who love them, and they know it. Having one great parent has to be better the two crappy ones. The only thing they are "at risk" for is being spoiled too much.
What's the most rewarding thing about being a single parent?
The best thing about being a single mom, especially a single mom by choice, is I get my kids all to myself! All parenting decisions are mine and mine alone. I don't have to deal with differing parenting styles. There is a lot of responsibility being the sole-parent, but I not needing deal with some of the stressful situations I see my married friends dealing with makes is worth it.
What's the most important thing being a single parent has taught you?
Single parenthood has shown me just how strong I can be. Nearly from the time I found out I was pregnant, I've had to make some tough decisions regarding things like finances, housing, my health and their health - and have risen to the occasion time and again. I rarely look at situations with an "I can't" attitude. It may be hard, but I can nearly always figure out how to make it work.
