My name is Julie, and I am a single mother. I have a profound respect for all other single parents, both mothers and fathers alike. Our job is not an easy one. With a great balance of hard work and much love for our children, we can make our future doctors and lawyers very respectable individuals. Every day if we as parents can take 5 individual minutes to tell our children how proud we are of them, and how much we love and care for them, wouldn't this world be a better place to live in ! I love being a parent, and would not give it up for anything.
My parenting philosophy...
Parenting is a very exciting, and very thought provoking choice. A child is like a chalkboard, and from the very beginning everything you place on the chalkboard will either be remembered by everyone that sees it, or erased like it was never there. Memories should be good and all new writing upon your chalkboard should be understandable and commendable. For children are our future, and we should put every ounce of energy into them. Anyone can be a "mom" or "dad", but it take a special person to be a "mother" or "father." Serve as the best example for you children, for they are our future. They see how you act and react, be there when they need you.
