What a difference a year makes! – Single Dad, Parents Article

I was chatting to friends about going through periods of “stormy weather”.It made me look back on last year and consider how, in comparison, this lockdown situation doesn’t feel too bad.Last year was nightmarish.Going from a position where we were struggling as a family, to seeking help, to having “help” turn into threats which then turned into accusations which finally caused us having a child kept away from us was nothing but hard.Looking back I can appreciate the intense hardships…

Homework – A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. – Single Dad, Parents Article

The hardy old rose bush right next to the front door. Against all the odds, it just keeps on giving. In a few hours the school at home project restarts again. One more 7 week push before we finally arrive at the summer holidays. What kind of Britain will it be? The old normal, the new normal or something else. This afternoon was glorious. Hot (for here) and sunny. Unbelievably not a single cloud all day. This is Yorkshire remember.…

Dear John – A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. – Single Dad, Parents Article

I seem to have upset someone with my last post. The person clearly didn’t want his name mentioning. Sorry I blocked you John. I assume that’s his name from the email address. My finger must have slipped. Ok John, to help hide your identity how about I call you something like Dork Head. According to my new friend, I apparently was disrespectful to the President of the United States. Really…. I must have missed that one. I was also patronising…

Alone Together, Toxic Condescension | The Single Dad’s Guide to Life – Single Dad, Parents Article

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. No, this does not make me Hamlet. I did not have my uncle kill my father to be able to get together with my mother. As difficult as I might find myself in this situation, that would warp me in a way I could not come back from. Living with knowledge that dark would send one into a lifetime hole of longing and regret. And while the Coronapocalypse drives me crazy with…

If you have custody she pays. : SingleDads – Single Dad, Parents Article

I pay my ex $1000/month, and I have full custody. She doesn’t pay for activities, school costs, childcare, anything. She supposed to cover like 40% of premiums and fights whenever I ask for that so I don’t even bother. Yes, I make more, but it feels so wrong.It’s sad, because these people are usually so obsessed with hating and hurting their ex, they are totally incapable of doing what’s best for their kids. This is only a snippet of a…

How do you guys feel about your kids calling their step father Dad? And to have it encouraged by him? I find it ridiculous : SingleDads – Single Dad, Parents Article

The man you took a screenshot of is clearly jealous of bio dad, but in my mind it is fine. Especially if it makes him that happy. I have known many men with stepdad they call dad because they raised them. It was very meaningful for their stepdads.It would hurt my feelings and all, but I wouldn’t criticize him for it if he is acting as their father most the time.That being said, the dude in the specific post you…
