Is it just me, or are the relationships between mothers and the fathers of their children getting worse and worse?
No, I’m pretty sure it’s not just me.
Statistics made public near the end of last year by the government put out there that 72 percent of black children are born to unmarried mothers. There is nothing wrong whatsoever with being a single mother, especially if you share custody with the child’s father, allow healthy visitation, collect a reasonable amount of support for the child and most importantly, get along. You don’t have to be all buddy buddy, but you need to at least be civil to one another. We all know the petty things men and women do to one another when they are heated, and when there’s a child involved, there’s no place for all that drama. And drama is expected these days (think of when a woman dates a man with a child they always ask themselves, “am I ready for baby mama drama?”). But watching the news and reading the blogs, I’ve found hateful crimes between baby mothers and fathers, childish lawsuits and damaging language about each other played out in public. All this proves we need to know folks a lot better and a lot longer than we used to before we lay down and produce children with them–cause things are getting real ugly.
