No I’m not talking about the love that you have for your child, but when you find a partner. This will be a person who doesn’t have a child, or never has had one either. It can cause a hard time for you to find true love, because there are a lot of people out there who just are not good with kids. It may be for several reason that they simply don’t click with your child, so what do you do?
When you have a younger child it is a lot harder to find love with another person. They often may not want to step into the shoes as a parent or even a provider for a child that they are not the father of. So often time’s younger single mothers will have many relationships that they will go through.
But trust me it doesn’t get any easier as your child gets older either. Because I now have a 15 year old boy and well it’s hard to deal with another person who simply doesn’t always seem to get “how to be a parent”.
They may simply not get that there are times when a child will get away with something and you will not punish them. Or that you punish them in a way that may not seem strict enough. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve heard, “he’s getting away with so much”.
Single mothers out there know how this is, I’m sure you’ve heard it as well. So what do you do, do you stick it out and hold onto a guy that may not be the right parent? Or do you move on and find another one that may be a better parent for your child?
It’s really a hard situation to be in and each person will have to decide what is best for not only them but the child involved. But one thing is certain that guys who have never had kids will have a tough time being a parent, especially when they are older.
