Know they will be ok. You can give the kids a pep talk in case your ex sucks. Otherwise go out and meet some new ppl. It will be ok.

Hi all. Hoping this bowl provides a way for single-parents to support each other emotionally. For me my job is super demanding not only hourly but mentally and I don’t get enough sleep, can’t cook for myself, can’t exercise, etc. I know you get it.

Hi single parents! How do you cope with being the NOT preferred parent? They say a mom and son bond is unbreakable but my son always chooses his dad 🥲 no matter how hard I try for our relationship, he always misses his dad even if they spent the whole week together. I love that their relationship is strong, but still hurts to know he’s fine without me but not his dad!
