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.
Hi my name is britney i was 16 years old when i found out i was expecting my little girl. I was 3 wks along when i found out and i still remember how scared i was to tell her dad he was 19 at the time and was leaving for naval boot camp...... And i knew that he did not want a child. Ne ways Life went on he left for the great lakes then florida! Through my whole pregnany i only had one person in my life and that was my mother who i owe so much too. My daughters dad and i never made it past my first trimester as a couple. wich was for the better becuase like i said he really wasnt cut out for a father role. But he does do his part finacially and for that i am happy.
N e ways so i gave birth to my daughter on march 3 2006 at 10 in the morning and after 28 hrs of labor i was just happy to have her........ She is almost 3 now and for the first years of her life i did it by myself she has never really known a father and i wish things could have been differnt but i would never change ne of it. But reecnetly in may i met the most wonderful guy im so in love with him and my daughter absolutly adores him she started calling him daddy about 2 mths ago, Things have changed since i was just a 17 year old girl trying to decide how i should raise my daughter...... but i can tell you ne amount of waiting is worth it becuase i now i have a beautiful family and my daughter has a REAL father. ANY BOY CAN CREATE A BABY BUT IT TAKES A REAL MAN TO BE A FATHER!

scaredi think I'm pregnant, i got my period late last month and only for four days (usually it's 8) and am four days late this month I don't know what to do. the father is a good friend of mine who I've known for almost a year. we have an off and on relationship, and our family's are pretty tight. But I'm 15 he's 16. If i am pregnant I think I'd keep my baby and i know he isn't ready to be a dad. I don't know what to do.
Believe and You Will AchieveI felt all alone in the world, and I was looking for love. At age I4 I became pregnant, and I didn't know who the baby's father was. It had to be one of two guys.. So I told both, they could be the father to my unborn child. The first one said That is not my baby, get an abortion. And the second one just simply said I am not the father. So I came to the conculsion that they were both right.... I was my son's mother and father! I didn't need anyone especially someone who didn't want to be there. Thank God for a supportive family because I wouldnt have been able to do anything, or get as far as I am now if it wernt for my family. At that time I droped out of school, and got into a really bad relationship, honestly because deep down I was looking for a father figure to my son. On my 16th birthday CPS showed up at my house, one of the most frightning experiences in my life! Later, I came to realize that the relationship i was in was abusive and i didn't want my son to live the life I was providing for him. I ended the relationship and started to focus on myself and my son. My best friend was so amazing... he helped me throu everything and never judged me he always provided and was the man he didn't have to be. We ended up getting our G.E.D 's together. I also went to college, I have an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice. And He is about to graduate in 5 weeks! We are married now with two wonderful children a boy and a girl! Life couldn't be any more perfect:) I have a great Job!! And My kids are well taken care of! My son is 5 now and he is the smartest kid in the whole wide world! My little blessing... If it wern't for my family who knows were I would be right now... But I am blessed! And remember anything is possible! Nothing is out of your reach just believe and you will achieve!
