If his grades slip Bc he canít handle school and sports then sports go. He knows this. And lastly, people without kids overlook the importance of sports. Sports are a right of passage and teach children much more than just the sport itself. Sports teach discipline, respect, responsibility and how to play fairly with others. I donít like when people chalk sports up to being just a ďjockĒ thing. Dig a little deeper and youíll find out that sports are actually a fabulous thing for children. Onto the aspects, I have never nor do I need a father figure for my son; his
Father is a phenomenal father that spends a great deal of time with his son.
And I never expected any guy that is in my life to fill that role. I didnít expect my ex boyfriend to attend every game but I did expect him to be supportive and not ride me Bc I wanted to go to my sons games. As I mentioned in another response; I ran myself ragged for many years trying to spend adequate time with both my son and my boyfriend and in the interim I forgot about myself.
I do appreciate your take on my issue tho and appreciate the feedback.

You are not a single parent.

Hmmm.... as defined, please see below regarding single parent:

single parent. noun. a person who has a dependent child or dependent children and who is widowed, divorced, or unmarried. (as modifier): a single-parent family

Therefore, I am a single parent.
