I have been a wreck since I have been living with him I'm miserable!I have a 2yr old son with the guy that doesn't respect me and humiliates me when we go out with friends , he goes out drinking approx twice a week and gets home late. I feel like I have no other option but to deal with it.I don't live at home with my mother becuase we don't get along so well,I cannot afford to live on my own beause daycare is a lot of money and that's what we pay for daycare 200 weekly.I feel trapped !! I know I deserve better than this but my parents werenkt together and I didn't want that for my child.I wanted him to have both of us together and raise him like a family. What should I do?

wow sounds like my 3 yr olds biological father. What the hell is so special about video games anyways? A real man will tell you he likes to play em on occassion but all the time seriously tell him to BE A MAN and if you have so much xtra time get a second job!!

There is also BC rental housing assistance and co-op housing you can apply for and get on the waiting list.

Hi there, I was in the same position once. I hate not feeling in control. There are transition homes you can stay in for 30 days until you get subsidy figured out. They grant you subsidy even when you are looking for work and then you send in 2 most recent pay stubs of your new job and they usually pay for more than half if youre low income :) If theres a will theres a way sweetheart youre living in 2012 and if you were to chose a time to be a single mom this day n age would be it!

I've had the same problem with my ex. He is my son's father, and he stopped being a dad when my son was about 6 months old, and gave me no respect. He spent ALL of his free time playing video games, and I was a second rate citizen, and the sex stopped. I felt like I had a child and a teenager, yet the teenager was my 40something year old husband... I say since your mom takes you in, dump the guy. I divorced mine 3 years ago, and haven't regretted it since.

If you are not happy then get out of the relationship. An unhappy mummy has an unhappy child. Ring around and found out what help is out there for single parents in your area. The social services people will be able to inform you of your options for living accommodation and any benefits that you are entitled to. It will be difficult to do, but once settled and free you can make choices for yourself and really start to live the life you wanted, rather than be stuck in a controlling abusive relationship. You only live once, so live a happy life!
