My Story

The reality was that once I was expecting a child, my son’s father decided he didn’t want to be actively involved in raising him. And that was that. It’s not what I would choose, but I had to accept it. I was now a single mom, a statistic.

While my son was still a baby, I handled single parenthood pretty well. Infants are demanding, but they’re not complicated. But then he started growing up, and when I looked at this little boy, my one son emerging into being a person, it dawned on me that I had to be both mother and father to him. Holy cow! At that point I was just doing whatever I could to be the mother. I had no idea how to be a father! It struck me like a lightening bolt – you have to be in two roles here, not one.

“What are successful dads teaching their children?” There were lots of great parenting books out there, of course, and I bought quite a few. But to be honest, for this work-from-home mom building her own business, it was hard to stomach parenting books that insisted that I should do this or I must do that. Those books only added to my “I’m not doing enough” sense of guilt, instead of helping me through it. What I really wanted were practical, real life, this-is-what-works ideas and solutions that were easy to implement – from dads.
