Myth 10: Single black moms are designed to do it ‘alone’: The attitude that many single black mothers take is that they can do it by themselves, and while that might be true for some, it is not true for all. Single Black moms don’t plan to raise their children alone.
Truth: The support system for single, black mothers is often a force to be reckoned with. With grandparents, uncles, aunts and other family members the void of the absent parent can be soothed. At their best these people can help protect, guide, and nurture the child of a single mother.
