    Being single mom to a male child

    Being single mom to a male child

    If Yuvraj Singh's mom can, so can you. Tackling the challenge of being a single mother bringing up a male child

    Being a single parent of a boy adds another level of pressure on a woman — the absence of a man in the house, goes popular thought, could do several things to a boy. He could turn gay or irreverent. The underlying assumption is that having just a woman as a parent is not enough.

    Some suggestions for the single moms to raise a male child

    Stop worrying about whether your son is missing out on anything. Believe in yourself. Your confidence and positive attitude will be contagious.

    - Don't avoid "daddy stuff". It's okay to read stories about all kinds of families to give your child a realistic perspective.

    - Regardless of how you became a single mother, never make your son the "man of the house." Correct others if they ask your son, "Are you taking good care of Mommy?" or "How does it feel being the man around the house?"

    - Try not to haveharbour a negative attitude towards men. Find an appropriate outlet to vent negative feelings.

    - Point out the positive qualities in men you see daily, even the child's father.
    - Help your child learn about 'guy stuff', but don't fret. If something's important to him,
    he'll ask you or a man in his life.

    - Help guide your son toward men who can teach him important life lessons.

    - Make expressing your feelings an essential part of family life. Do not disparage your son's
    feelings.

    Dont think how many moments in your life;
    Just think how much life is there in a moment.

    When a single woman wants to adopt a child then we start looking for a steady income, familial support and sound values. I think that's all is important.

    See being a single mom is not bad... but its again depend upon that how you are going to handle the situations in your life. If a lady is single and have a childrens with her then i think in this crucial world its very difficult to survive and if you are earning well then no one can beat you..in short if you are independent, ready to face hurdles in your life, have faith on god then you can survive well.

    Your points like steady income, family side support are so much important while the single mother is venturing into looking after a male child. thanks Ahana
