ALL Single Parents~~Raising Children Alone

This is for all single parents who are raising children alone–men and women. What many don’t understand is that many victims of abuse become isolated by their abusers, then have no one to help them when they are alone. Many families are distant. Help is rare. So these single parents struggle to do it all alone… which is not an easy task especially when there may be two, three, or even more children to care for on a daily basis. And it’s not only women who raise their children alone. Many men have become single parents to children as mothers abandon them. My prayers go out to all for it is not easy path.

All single parents…
struggle from week to week.
For this is not an easy path…
leaving many feeling bleak.
For when marriages fall apart…
first we don’t know what to do…
juggling children, house, and work…
as the single parent life is new. Continue reading

The Single Parent’s Support Group

This posting is for all single parents who are raising their children alone. Too many parents, in an effort to hurt the domiciliary parent, selfishly neglect their children just to hurt the parent. They do not provide child support or may pay minimal child support which only hurts the children. They want to keep extra resources out of the hands of the other parent but it is never extra. Many parents spend little time with their children, even when they have court appointed weekends.  Unfortunately for them, in their effort to hurt the other parent in their anger and bitterness, they are only hurting their children and themselves. Many of these children develop feelings of being unloved and wounds of rejection because of the words and actions of their parent. “The Walking Wounded” can begin at a young age…

Single Parent’s Support Group….
that’s what we all need!
For too many don’t understand…
even with our stories they read.
For unless you’ve experienced it…
the trials of raising children alone…
the extent of the difficulties…
can not truly be known. Continue reading

The Single Mom’s Club

“The common thread that brought us together…

would be the very thing that almost tore us apart.”

This is a quote from a movie…
that recently touched my heart.
And it’s from this quote…
that my posting will now start.
For many of us have joined…
this club that we now face.
And some were voluntarily…
while others with reluctant haste.
For it’s not very easy…
to raise up our children alone.
Especially when we’re wounded…
with the various abuses we’ve known.
But God gives us children…
to raise with His instruction.
Not to be used and abused…
which leads many to destruction.
So we join this single mom’s club…
though many of us would dread…
and we vow to raise our children…
as God and His Word have led. Continue reading
