First of all, yes I am a single father. It's difficult to find sites that I can get good information from about my baby girl though from places where both genders of parents are allowed. So instead of poking around, I just joined circleofmoms to make it easy. Besides, woman know best, right?
My daughter just turned 6, but has always been adamant about her mother. "Where's mommy?" "Did mommy leave because of me?" "All my other friends have mommys... I want one too!" are the comments / questions I hear at least once a day from her. I try my best but no answer I give seems to please her (which is shocking to me - friends as well as her school comments on how mature she is, I thought maybe it would be easy for her to understand?). I know she is around males more than females (been trying to work this out more too), so I understand her crave for a female role around. But I'm thinking it's something deeper than this. Any tips? It's becoming frustrating for both of us and I hate my little girl crying all of the time, wanting something I know she can't get back.
