    I am so sorry you are going through this. It must be very hard to be away from him so much, especially having an only child. My son is the only one at home so he is like an only child. I am going through a difficult situation in my marriage and will likely soon find myself in your situation. I would say make the time you have together special and focused on him. The fact that you are feeling this way shows that you are a great mom and love your son very much.

    Please excuse my lack of advice, it is late and I was about to fall asleep but wanted you to know that you are heard and your feelings are important. I would be glad to respond again, after some sleep.
    Feel free to message me anytime.

    Well, i can understand your situation. Being single parent is really a tough job. You have to keep a balance between work and home and of course you have to give time to your child too. Your child demands you more time because he may feel the absence of his father. I know you are unable to give him quantity time because of your job but give him quality time when you are with your child. Don't feel guilty as you are not giving him much time, the only thing that you are doing is a job for his better future. Stay strong and brave, you are doing very well.

    Hi there. How are you? I think giving attention to your child is more important than doing work. You need to work hard for sure, I know, but what will you do of that hard work which will take you away from your son? You may search online jobs. You can also do a job for fewer hours. I wish you all the best. Take care of your diet and health.

    Hi Hannah. Single parenting is always hard and challenging. It is understandable how bad you are feeling for your child. I would suggest you try to spend as much time with him as possible when you are off your work. Give him quality time; you have to learn to manage between your work and your personal life. Hope things will get better soon and you will learn to balance out everything.

    I am sorry to learn that your husband divorced you and you are now struggling to bring up the boy. However, I am motivated that the court saw it fit to give you custody of the child. You see bringing up a boy without a head figure in the house is a difficult thing. I have on several occasions been called upon to offer counseling services to boys who have been brought up by single mothers. This has prompted me to grab this opportunity and offer some ideas on what you need to do to avoid the pitfall. Now normally, there will be no problem until the boy attains the age of 13 years. This is the time adolescent stage starts setting in and the boy starts feeling that he has become a man. Boys at this age want someone who they can copy and emulate. If the father figure is missing in their house, they will copy from their neighbors. This is the time boys start smoking cigarettes because they have seen the men they think are their models do. It is also possible that the boy will start showing rebellious behaviors and may not want to take instructions from the mother. They realize that they are men and so something tells them that it is bad to take instructions from a woman. In school, when it becomes difficult for the female teacher to handle the boy. They become rude and often they will engage other boys in fights. I am not saying that your boy will do this no! I am just trying to caution you.

    Well I am sorry for your divorce. I don't know what else to say. It's just really bad. I think you should talk to Ralph Lauren guys. I know they are going to help you in this matter. It would be very helpful for you to talk about your situation with them. I know you want to give him time. Still you have to earn for them also right. It's not like that you could just let it go. I think you should consider some good daycare center as well. Until your situation is not covered by the Ralph lauren, The good daycare center will help you with your child. It's really good trust me. Just try it.
