What is hard is raising a child. The fact is, the amount of work, pain, and sacrifice that comes with raising a child is so much more than what most people think. Being a single mom is the hardest job I have ever had, so I would hate to think that the rest of my life was going to be the same way.
Being a single mom is hard because you are alone and have no one to turn to. I know it’s hard because I’ve tried to do it myself. I’ve watched other single moms on Instagram and seen all the posts of their beautiful kids wearing pretty things and beautiful outfits and never once was I looking to buy them any of that.
I think it’s true that being a single mom is hard, especially if you have kids. There are so many things that you have to do when you have a baby: sleep, feed, change diapers, clean up, pick up after your kid, etc. None of these things are easy to do, but they are all things that single moms do for a living. You don’t have the luxury of time, money, or desire to do them all on your own.
The good news is that single moms who raise children without a husband or boyfriend can make it to adulthood without losing their ability to work. For example, the single mom with a child that eats two meals a day like me can still take care of herself and her child and earn money and have friends and social life. I was lucky enough that my mom had some extra money that she could spend on me, so that was something.
The single mom who can spend time at home and still care for her child. It can take a lot of time. It takes a lot of money. It takes a lot of thought and effort. But it can happen.
I don’t know about you, but I sure don’t want to have to spend all my free time caring for my child or myself. And I do think raising a child is hard. Even if I’m on the other side of the country, I still have to work on it to get things going, so it’s not as bad. But I think that it’s very hard to raise a child because it’s hard to make the best decisions for them.
I think a lot of people say, “but its not as hard as I think it is.” I think that a lot of people say, “but Im not doing it all the time.” Well, I think that there is a lot of things that can be done to make it easier. I read a lot of research about “parenting” and it says that parenting is hard, but the biggest factor is parenting ourselves.
I think there is a lot to be said for taking the time to take care of ourselves. If you can take some time to take care of yourself, you can take some time to take care of your child.
I think parenting yourself is hard but also easy. I think if you can do things to make yourself feel better, you can do it to your child. It seems like every parent I know has some sort of pet peeve. It can be anything from putting the kids in front of the TV when they are supposed to be sleeping, to trying to force them to eat their vegetables and not go outside when they are only supposed to be resting.
Parents will also sometimes fail at this, but I think a lot of it comes down to the fact that we forget how really hard it is to raise children to be independent. We’re just too busy trying to be a mommy and a daddy. We think it is so much easier than it is. We think we have so much control over our lives. It’s hard work, but it is also fun. It is the work that makes us the person we are.
