The High Cost of Single Parenthood: Anyone Surprised?

September 16, 2011  |  

I’m not. Yet ANOTHER article that tells more of the truth. Parenting a child without a contributing partner is expensive. I’ve been there. Sometimes working 50 hours a week on top of paying for daycare, cooking, helping with homework, going to all the school events and being scared as “hayell” of what might happen if I ever lost my job.  Ladies and gents, THIS. IS. NOT. IDEAL.

The idea of the “strong, independent woman” is a cruel myth when it comes to parenting.  You can indeed be strong and independent on YOUR OWN, but once you throw in one or two kids, then things get complicated.  Very complicated.
