Hi I am a newly single mom to a 2.5 year old little boy. He is my whole world I'm having a hard time adjusting to single motherhood especially with disciplining my son and getting him to listen to me. I've tried timeout and taking time outside away. I also work a full time job and that makes it hard on both of us. I am so frustrated. I am also dealing with my ex he ended up on drugs and is now homeless and his mother is doing nothing but enabling him please help I love my son with all my heart and only want what is best for him. I really need someone to talk too!!

Thank you Alice☺ I will check on the support services I know my employer offers counseling I will check into that. I do have family support which is a blessing but I feel like I need to talk to someone about all the guilt I feel about taking My son away from his father but I could not have him because he was sneaking around getting pills and he's wrecked 3 of my cars because of it. He never worked to help take care of US And he has stolen from me and my son. What kind of father does that?

I can feel your stress, Lindsay. I work a full-time job with 2 kids, and I can imagine what you're going through. Is there a parent counselling or parent support group in your city's community center? Does your employer location offer parental support? One of the things that took some stress out of my parenting days was finding a day-care right next to my workplace so I could be with my babies during the to-fro train rides and I would visit them as often as possible. No matter how you raise your boy, you are the one who knows what's best for me and he will know that. Just give him a lot of love and hugs, so he knows that you'll always be there for him. Take things a day at a time. Hang in there.
