10 Myths About Single Black Moms

- By

Myth 7: The child of a Single Black mother grows up too fast: Because a child is a product of a single parent home, he or she has their child-hood taken away from them and they must take on the role of the absentee parent.

Truth: Raising a child without the help of man does not automatically translate to ignorance when it comes to meeting the needs of a child. Many single mothers have the common sense and resources to raise children without relying on them to help out or pitch in just to get by. Without this increased responsibility, children from a single mom household have just as good a chance of maintaining their innocence for as long as possible.
