Meanwhile their parents often find it hard to adjust when they have to surrender educational duties. They’ve had total control over their child’s curriculum for their life up to that point and then suddenly they have to hand over control to a group of strangers who determine what their child will learn. Many parents find this incredibly hard to deal with and their kids suffer as a result. I was raised by a mother who moved in with my future step dad when I was 7 years old. I always felt like I was raised by a single mother though because she made it known that he could not discipline me in any way. I saw him as a piece of furniture. I greeted him but did not engage with him as a father type. He went onto abuse me sexually which even more confirmed that he was not a father figure in anyway. I just always felt that I had one parent growing up, so I would often say that I was raised in a single parent household! My mother called the Frog I’m not lazy I’m just in energy saving mode shirt in contrast I will get this shots when it came to any decision about me. My biological dad was no where in the picture. I am married and we are raising our two daughters as a team. We love each other, and take our parenting seriously. As I have thought about my own life growing up, I have often felt that I would not be as good a mother if I did not have this amazing partner to shoulder so much with me. I would probably be far more impatient if it all fell onto me to handle everything. I would do the best I could, but my best would not be as good as I would hope. I think balancing work and raising kids can be a challenge to anyone but even more for a single parent. There are not enough hours in the day. I got to the school and entered the office to sign in; everyone looked at me and burst into laughter. I looked so jacked up it was crazy. I walked the hall smiling at all the kids. Oh, did I mention I left the cereal between my teeth. All the kids were just looking at me in disgust. I entered my son’s homeroom. Made sure to be loud enough so everyone knows I have arrived. My son saw me and if the ground would have opened he would have jumped in. He was so embarrassed. He was trying to hide under the table. Now that they are teenagers they will occasionally say that I don’t understand certain things because I am white. I really don’t think that is much different from teenagers who say their parents don’t understand things because they are old or any other excuse.
