It's not easy being a single mom. As a single parent, you have to take on double the parenting duty. Other issues can make this even more complex. For example, some young moms write about what to do if my boyfriend is an alcoholic. Please share your experience and wisdom. As you will see, these problems require a great support system, time management skills and top-notch parenting techniques. If you have tips to share with other single moms or just want to help other single mothers and single parents out there, then tell us your story.
After reading a few stories i would like to share mine with you.
Im 21 and im 7 1/2 months pregnant with my little boy. I have just go out of a 4 year relationship which was a very voilent relationship.
I first got together with my then boyfriend when i was nearly 18 and he was 18 at the time and for the first year everything was great and he treated me like a princess. Until i fell pregnant at 18, he was over the moon, but he had no job no-where to live.
As soon as i told my mum she wanted me to get rid of it, as she hated my boyfriend because he was in and out of prison all the time and was also selling drugs. I was young at the time and i did what my mum told me too, and when i went to tell my boyfriend what i was going to do (hoping he would try and change my mind and say he would support me) he turned up drunk and when i went to walk off he pinned me up against a wall and threathened me. I walked away, had an abortion.
After a month i started speaking to him again and we got back together after he promised not to do it again, things changed very quickly and the abuse got worse and worse from pushing me around, and even raping me. I went to the police when he raped me but i dropped the case because he had threathened me saying if he went down, we would never be save as his famil would come and get us and all his friends.He had complete control over me, he wouldnt let me go and see my friends and tried to turn me against my family.
I never left him because everytime i said i was leaving he would threaten to kill my family and turn up at my house and smash my car up and my mum and brothers cars.
In 3 years i got pregnant another 3 times one of which i had an abortion as i couldnt see myself bringing a baby up with a partner like him, and i also had two miscarriages.
I am now pregnant again and have finally found the strength to leave him, i went to the police about a month ago as we were in my car and he tried to crash the car and kill us, he was arrested and was not allowed in the county where i live but he jumped bail and in now back and i keep getting threats and my car has yet again been smashed in. but i am staying strong for my baby.
I just want everyone to know that no matter how tough it can be you will get through it, i still have a long way to go but i know it will turn out alright and i cant wait to meet my little boy and when he is born he will have nothing to do with his father.
Good luck eeryone.

15 and a single momhello...im Pregnant nd im 15 im going to have a boy nd a gurl..i got pregnant at 14 but now im 15..im not with my babydaddy he is in jail.. wen i told him that i was pregnant he told to find the babydaddy he would fight with me alot so that why he is in jail....im due in june 1st.... my family going to help me with my kids....im so happy that im going to have them....i dont care what people say bout me having my babies because it not what you think... im going to be a good mother to my kids.....it a big thing in my life... so to all my single mom just keep up the good work cause you can do with the babysdaddy or without them...that what i say
15 and pregnant!!!Hello...well heres my story i am fifteen and ready to have my baby in 3 weeks so therefore i am 37 weeks pregnant...buh the onli thing rong is that i am not with the babys father anymore and since i found out that i was pregnant i have been with at least another 3 people and they had accepted that i was pregnant. But i just can't find the right person who wants to be there for my baby and me because i truly believe that my babys biological father wants nothing to do with him. Yes, i am having a boy and i can't wait even thought i am only 15 doesn't make me a bad person or them kinda people that you would call a slut because everyone is going to have sex one time in their life. Yeah maybe i was underage but don;t think that i was angry about it because i was. i have a whole life and education ahead of me but i don't really care because once my son is born m going to do my best and be the good mother that he deserves to have. All my family are there for me and i don't care what everybody else thinks because i am who i am and i done what i done and i cant change that now. So for all those teenagers that are pregnant out there don't let anybody put you down because it is your decision nobody elses they don't own you do they.
Never abort a child it wil leave you scarred for life..
Thats why i made the decision to have my bady..
N i don't regret it one bit
