A friend of mine is a single mom and I've made some observations lately. Just because you are or have been a single parent doesn't mean you should tell another single parent what they should do. Just because someone else worked three jobs and was a single parent does not mean that it will work for another single paren'Tourette's Syndrome situation. Just because one person can work 2nd shift and be a single parent does not mean that another person can. Just because you've (or someone you know) did all types of things as a single parent, doesn't mean that anyone else can or will. Each situation is different just as each child is different and the personal financial issues of people are just that....personal. Off my soap box now, just wanted to vent a bit for my friend.
