Happy Father's Day

      Today is Father's Day and I was surprised that I didn't have any post about "deadbeat dads" and women wishing other women a Happy Father's Day on my Facebook feed.  I am sure many of you know what I am talking about. You may have been party to it or have witnessed it before but you know what I'm talking about.
     I think that as Single Moms some of us get so upset or are so jaded by what has happened with our children's fathers that every opportunity that we get, we say something bad about them.  This should never be the case.  No matter what the situation is between you and your children's father is, don't talk bad about them in front of the child.  It's not a good look.  As your child grows up, they will be able to form their own opinions about him and your negative comments should not be in the mix.
     Remember ladies, we are our children's first example and sometimes only example inside the home. Let's ensure that we do it right and raise children that do not harbor hate and hostility towards their fathers based on your opinions of him.
     To all the men who read my blog who are fathers ....Happy Fathers Day and be blessed.

  1. Hi there, no visitor for Mom Bloggers Club and I couldn't have said it any better. I'm a single mom also but I don't engage in the petty drama of cursing my daughter's father. Been there done that and it doesnt help anything. I wrote a similar post today on my blog, be sure to check it out: alexandra-elizabeth.com :)

  2. This is so true! My mother practiced this my whole life, and I am so grateful to her for doing that. In fact, the only bad thing she ever said was 'Go brush your teeth! You've got bad teeth like your dad's and they're going to fall out if you don't brush them! Lol. This helped so much when I began to build a relationship with him at 16. I had no negative, preconceived notions about him, and that made bonding so much easier.
