I'm just curious how people define this. To me a single parent is someone who has no help in raising the child. you know like for a single mom there is no father or stepfather in the picture. There is no one to go to and say this is your area you handle it. you teach him to pee standing up. others disagree and i don't understand why. If the other parent is involved in raising the kid then how can you really say your a single parent. its kind of like the whole girl friend boy friend thing. you can be a parent and be single but that doesn't make you a single parent. Am i wrong to get irritated with people who whine about how hard it is being a single mom when they're kid's dad has the kid for the weekend?
