My name is Michelle and I am a single mom with a 20 month old daughter. Her father isn't helping any.... actually I think he is in jail or something. We were (are) married but he became abusive and making the change from family life to single mom isn't, hasn't and surely won't be easy. I'm glad to find that there are groups like this one to help. Look forward to getting to know you all.

Hi Michelle, and welcome. My name is Laura and I am 28 and a single mum to my 2 year old daughter. I have been sngle for a year after walking out on my ong term partner. He too was abusive at times and I found it hard to make the decision to leave butits the bet thing I ever did. He ha caused me nothing but trouble since esp over the lsat few months as we are in the middle of child maintenance and custidy battle (although I have heard he has disappeared down south now). There are times when its hard but the best decision I ever made. My daughter and I are much happier then we ever were. Look forward to seeing you around here. Take care

Thanks... Like I said I am new to all of this but I appreciate the support you have shown. Hope things are going well for you. The hardest part of me is when he decides to call which isn't often if I let her talk to him she is upset so I have quit doing that. But now he acts like I am keeping her from him... I guess I am in a way but ..... I always second guess my self and can't help it but does anyone have advice on that situation?

Hi michelle, keep your chin up as you have a large group on here that will give you the support you need, having kids isnt easy and although i was married for 20 years the transition to single parent was hard especially for my daughter as she was 10 and took the split hard but it would have been better if it had been done before cos of the damage he did so dont think about the fact that he isnt about you and your daughter are better off without him .
