How to Reform a Deadbeat Dad

November 12, 2010  |  

Maybe the father of your child isn’t on some Maury Povich level of denial and ridiculousness, but still has deadbeat tendencies.  Spotty financial contributions, sometimey acknowledgement of your child’s milestones and a general lack of effort to establish a deep bond, are all sure signs that you’re dealing with a dead beat-ish dad. What’s a single mom to do? If you think the father of your child has the potential to be a better father, but needs some prodding to get things going, try out these tips.  Is it fair to you to have to take responsibility for facilitating a father/child bond? Hell naw, but you’re doing this for your child’s sake. It’s worth it.  You are attaching training wheels to the relationship and the hope is that one day the relationship will balance and continue on it own without so much effort on your part.
