Raw and Honest Blog of a New Single Mom

I am a single mother of a biracial baby boy just trying to make it on my own. This journey is hard, yet rewarding. Blogging is my therapy, these words are my heart, and people doing better and being inspired by what I have written is my passion and hope.

It breaks my heart when I discipline my son and he silently weeps and sniffles cuddled in the corner with his teddy bears while giving me the sad eyes.

Damn, damn, damnit.

Whatever! I am not that bad guy here! I will not give in!

    It’s always tough to discipline your kid whilst you know the child is going through trauma. However you would rather be bad mama than ruin them in their live forever. I always tell my gal this ” I don’t mind if you regards me as bad mama, but now I need you to ….”. Afterawhile, she starts to understand I’m doing this for her own good. So well

    I know the feeling- and it’s even worse when you’re a single mom. You ALWAYS have to be the badguy! It’s so frustrating. As your previous commenter said though- you are doing the right thing. Try to always turn the negative of the punishment into a positive. If my son jumps on the couch, I put him in a time out. I ask him what he did wrong, and when he replies that he jumped on the couch, I ask him what he should have done instead. (ie- asking for the trampoline.) I praise him for giving the right answer. Then, when his time out is over I reward him with praise for handling the time out so well. He’ll almost always give me a hug and say thank you, which is odd to me since I just diciplined him- but it works! I know your cutie is little, but he’ll get there eventually.

    Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours require a lot of work? I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    Never give in to such schemes when you are disciplining your child, for it won’t take long before they repeat the same mistake again. It is better if you straighten them at a tender age so that you end up not regretting in the future.

    I also feel that one. It is really not easy to discipline our kids but that is our responsibility as a parent. So, for me, you are just doing right.

    Now a days it’s really hard for a kid to understand what discipline is, they just want what they want, and as parent we can’t just watch them go on with their lives falling a part.

    Its really to hard discipline a kid. I feel that too. I have 2 boys, 6 and 7,.. Sometimes they loosen my patience. I have to hit them but I feel pity on them afterwards. It’s not easy being a parent.

    It is not that simple to become a mom especially when you are alone raising your child. Single mom should be very strong and have strength in facing life together with her child.

    You just did right. As a parent, it is our responsibility to mold our the personality of our children. It is our responsibility to discipline them. You are a good mother.

    If you will not discipline your child, who will? It’s every parents responsibility to train up a child for them to be a better person.

    Once a child is disciplined while he or she is still young is the best way to do especially when you are a single mom. It is really hard to raise a child when you are alone.

    Unless the blog is a personnel journal, aimed at friends and family, you will need to start thinking about SEO. SEO stands for search engine optimization which basically means developing your blog site in such a way that it will be placed at the top of the search results in Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.
