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.

My Beautiful BabyIm currently 15 and I have gave birth to a beautiful little girl, Sienna - Nicole on the 25th October 2008 and she is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I was with her father until November last year where I found out I was pregnant again. Im 7 months gone now and am awaiting the arrival of Sienna's baby brother Noah on 7th July 2009. Being a single mum isnt all what its cracked up to be. there are plenty of sleepless nights and pooey nappys to change but to be honest I love every second of it. I still attend a mainstream High School and yeah, I do get many strange looks and names called at me such as *Slag" "whore" and the most amusing "Juno" I bring Sienna to school with me 3 times a week and take her into my lessons. Its quite embarrassing when I have to wap my nipples out in class to feed her but I think everyones used to it now and they all fight over who touches her and strokes her hair :) Its rather annoying when I have to wheel the pram around school because there isnt much room either. If you do become pregnant and you are a single mum, please make sure you have a supporting family and get your priorities right. The Children come first. Not us. If there is a choice over reading Sienna a bedtime story or going out for a friends 16th I would definitely choose Sienna. Good Luck to all those who are pregnant and to all those thinking. Consider it carefully.
maybehi well my story is not about being a single mom its about maybe being a mom..me and my bf thinks im pregnant well im 17 and working and we are happy the only ones that know is me and my bf and his mother and she is supportive ,she wants to take me for a test and wants me to move in with them we are only dating for 4 months but i love him to death and abortion is NOT an option for us ..im going to take a preg.test today but he made me promise to not tell him yet because he wants to ask me to marry him and doesnt want to know yet because he wants to ask me coz he loves me and not because im pregnat the only problem is telling my parents they already hate me..if any one can help me please give me advice
Leah Samantha StorkI was 17 when i found out i was pregnant. I was so mad and thought i had ruined my life. My boyfriend was not happy but said he would support me. I should have made a better choice.
Then on April 24,2005 i started labor. I was at the store with my boyfriend getting a carseat for when we would take the baby home. On the way home i felt strong contractions. We drove to the hospital about 1 hour after we got to our apartment.
We got to the hospital and i was 6 cm dialated. I was shocked!! This was the day. I got through the contractions. THen it was time to push. My boyfriend held my hand the whole time. It hurt extremley bad. I did it without medication. Then Leah Samantha Stork was born. She was a blessing but also a piece of work. I love her but it wasn't good being a teenage mother.
