  2. Single Parents Husbands' ex wife wants to visit kids...(more) 8-10-2018 1:44pm (41 replies)
    I don't know if I am overreacting or it's totally normal. Husband has 50/50 physical custody with his ex wife, half of the week child spends with ex wife, and other half of the week child lives with us. Occasionally, ex wife says that she misses the child and wants to come over to our house and spend about 30 min with the kid. Is this normal? I don't want her coming into our home, walking through the house etc going to kids room and sit there.... if she missed the kid, why not take her for ice cream or something and bring back. To me she is a stranger, and I dont want her in my house even for 30 min.... Am I crazy or it's a normal request?

    The divorce is interstate and the father is hostile and a millionaire. I have spent my savings/emergency funding to get the divorce dismissed in another state. He's never lived with our young child, and he wanted to force a 5 year old to travel to another state for a contested trial. I spent tens of thousands to have that dismissed. I have a disability and need to pay a lawyer to challenge my employment situation too. I do not have money for all of this.

  10. Single Parents SINGLE PARENT SEEKING ADOPTIVE HOME FOR NEWBORN BEFORE X-MAS...(more) 12-20-2017 12:39pm (2 replies)
    I am the birth mother and will do anything to see that this child is adopted into a lovely and caring home before Xmas.
    It has not been an easy decision but I know its the right one giving the circumstances at hand.
    She deserves nothing but the best out there and I as the birth mother will guarantee that.
    The father abandoned us when I was just a month pregnant , I wouldn't blame him because everyone is entitled to what so ever he thinks or does.
    My God is real and I will keep believing in him either in good or bad times.
    Its his will for me to take this path for the child and nothing will stop me .
    If you are seriously looking to adopt ASAP, please leave an email for future communication.
    If you don't leave an email I wouldn't contact you it means you are not serious.
    Also my email: shannonluker1@gmail.com
    Thanks and God bless you

      Hey Shannon, (got the name from email.) No, I'm not the one interested in adopting your little girl. I meant to appreciate your strengths in this toughest of a situation. Will you be able to live without your baby? (Or are you already living?) What if the father appears someday on your door? Claiming his right to have the daughter back. I keep imaging these worst-case scenarios. And somehow they help me making important decisions. If you'r already done with legal procedures. I wish you nothing but luck. Love and Light xx

  11. Single Parents How can I thank parents for doing a fantastic job?...(more) 12-20-2017 11:28am (14 replies)
    I'm a teacher. In my role, I come across all types of parents. However, there are just some parents that are doing a darn good job of raising their kids (in my opinion and relative to other parents I encounter). For instance, I have one student whose parent encourages him to be polite, gives him chores, and administers consequences when he does not meet expectations. As a result, this child is extremely polite (asking if he can carry things for me, etc) and responsible. I have another student who lost his father - his grandmother is his caregiver now. She seems overwhelmed with the responsibility, but constantly puts his well-being first (seeking counseling for him, etc.) I feel a little silly asking this, but I would love to recognize these parents in a private way. In a quick email, a letter, etc. Something along the lines of "Keep it up - your kid is awesome!" However, as I do not have kids of my own, I'm not sure this would be a welcome gesture. A

      Hey there nice teacher. I'm also one. Not sure if I relate on the niceness. But yeah, I absolutely got your feels. Not just now. But whenever I came across those one of a kind kids. It's commonly said. That a child beahviour reveals about his background. How he has been brought up. And our cases, we tend to judge. And this can't be helped. I'm not sure what age group you teach. Mine are mid-to-late teenagers. And some of them are just poles apart. I'm able to distinguish the gems. Hehe! Send those emails. Keep no hesitations. They need all that appreciation. For the homework. (Not in the literal sense, of course.) Love xx

    and he began to tell me how he is falling in love with some woman who lives in another state. Then he went on to say how he's "a dog." I sat there and felt like perhaps there was some truth there, but mostly he was letting me down easy, maybe? Anyway, it felt horrible, and now I'm sad because I was off base and potentially humiliated. That's all. :(

    You need to get enough protein if you want to build muscle. Protein shakes and powdered supplements are some of the most popular ways of boosting your protein intake. The best times to consume these supplements is right after working out and before bed. If you would like to drop fat and build muscle at the same time, you should just consume one per day. If you want to bulk up in mass as well as muscle, then you can consume as many as three daily.In order to build muscles, remember that carbohydrates are very essential, as well. Carbohydrates serve as the energy source the body needs to complete workouts. When performing intense workouts, it is important to eat between 2-3 grams of carbohydrates for every pound of weight you carry, each and every day.Focus on your nutrition and calorie intake on the days that you will be do muscle building exercises. Consume many calories at least an hour before exercising. That doesn't mean you can eat whatever you want, but that you need to eat a
