I am a working single mother of one and I am engulfed with my job. I work crazy hours and never have a consistent schedule. My son is only 19 months old and thankfully, my mother is his babysitter. I feel awful for hardly ever seeing my son due to working so often. I have looked and looked for a simple part-time jobs close to home and no luck. My mother begs me daily to quit my job bc she knows I'm miserable and depressed. But I don't want to go back to tanf and food stamps. My parents offered to help out with any finances I have, but am I sending my son the wrong message? After all, I did marry a deadbeat who never worked. I dont want my aon growing up thinking hebhas two lazy parents. I want to give my son the best life possible but I really want to be apart of his life more. Should I quit my job and be a full time mom or tough it out? Any advice would be so appreciated.
