Default Hi Everybody

I am new to this board and just wanted to introduce myself.

My story is a long one and I might tell it here one day but to cut a long story short my wife passed away in January and I am bringing up my 2 year old daughter and 14 year old step daughter (who I think of as a daughter).

I have been looking for single parent support forums for some time, especially ones that support single fathers as well.

I am trying to be there for my daughters and they seem to be getting through things and I hope that I have helped them along the way.

Now that I have finally picked up courage hopefully I can keep on posting as I am sure that there are many of you that can help me with advise on toddler and teenage years !!!!

Hi penlost, and welcome to the site. I think you'll find a good group of people here. And yes, a fair amount of active single dad members as well. Definitely a great place for seeking advice or even kind ears to listen.
Sorry to hear about your loss. Keep up the courage.

Don

Hi,

I am fairly new here as well - welcome! I add my condolences to the group and wish you the best in raising your girls. You may want to consider joining a church. It seems to be the only offline place to find support.

Many thanks for your very warm welcome

It's nice to feel as though some support is there if needed. I don't know about anybody else, but being a single parent feels very isolating at times and lonely. It's crazy because I do have family and friends around me!

Once again , many thanks.

Not so crazy - I have them around me as well but none of them have small children. They seem to have forgotten what it is like. Some never knew. The worse is the ones that don't have kids but think they know. I guess it's the universe's cruel joke because I was one of those. I would take all my neices and nephews out - 7 of them - at the same time. I had no idea there was behavior reserved exclusively for parents!
