I don't think they are missing out . You just need to teach, respect, awareness, confidence and a work ethic and the rest will hopefully fall into place. give them responsibilities to do around the house and not just ones you consider to be male jobs. helping you cook and clean and just encourage them to be themselves and strive for goals. Let them show you how they can be responsible don't try and keep them needing you to much . Have fun with them go camping ( if thats what you like to do ) or to the amusement arcade. Make sure you teach them about themselves there bodies and how to respect that and respect others. there are alot of single parents that do just fine and alot of couples that struggle. sure its much harder on your own. but as long as you all have fun and lead a balanced life, those boys with be strong independent respectful men in no time.



Good luck
