Dear Elle,

Yes, there are lots of us out there. For whatever reason, seems this forum hasn't kicked off quite successfully. I'll consider your post a whistle-blow to all the others. YooHoooooo! Come on over!

Let's see what happens. It would be nice if we could get together here, exchange ideas, thoughts, and support each others thus.


I'm not near 50, closer to 30, but sending you a hug nevertheless!

Look out for my pm.

All the best!

Hi, I'm 41 and I'm a single mother of a very energetic 3 year old girl. :-)

Do you have a LiveJournal account? You can find me there under username HannahSarah (one word).

I'm a single mother that just accessed this site for the first time. My children are with my ex at this point for various reasons, so I'm quite a bit lonely too. Please e-mail me if you would like to connect at: aila@thejnet.ca

Looking forward,

Aila

Sorry, for not responding until now. I find this forum sluggish, so I forget to check if there are any responses. The reason my ex got the kids is really long and extensive. Suffice it to say that he had the courts and rabbis around his little finger. Thank G-d that I have kept up my faith, because it has been hard going. What about you? What do you find are the biggest challenges with bringing up kids singlehandedly?

The biggest challenge I find in bringing up kids (almost) singlehandedly is keeping a happy atmosphere in the home especially around shabbos and yom tov time.

Some ideas that help: turn on the music!

download jokes from Jewlarious at aish.com.

Have good food and good reading material around.

Keep up with friends who are sympathetic but have confidense in you.

Take meds. if you need to.

Make use of any relative that reaches out--go for a shabbos meal, share their simchos, etc.

Keep up your faith, hard as it may seem, and angry as you may get at HaShem for the difficult matzav we are in. Your children need to remember, as do we, that we have a Father who will never abandon us.

Find someone less fortunate than you and help in small ways (not in ways that will further compromise your time and energy--leaving you depleted) so that you and your children know that you are fortunate in certain ways that others may not be.

Don't give up. Your children need you to model hope.
