I was reading at Single Parent 411 about taking parenting classes and decided to google and see if I could find one near me. I put single parenting classes in Google and there were maybe three or four links to parenting classes (two of which were not for single parents) the rest were all single parent dating. WTF?
Is that all that society thinks we worry about, how to date? Yes, there are those select few single parents who worry more about their dating life than their family life but those are few and far between. Why isn’t there help out there for single parents who want help parenting. I know there are plenty of parenting classes but I want one specifically for what I need. I hate it but I always feel like I’m being judged when I’m around married moms. I’m not sure if they are threatened by me or if they just pity me. Neither of which is anything I want. I want a parenting class that I can go to and feel completely comfortable in. And I don’t want the answer to problems to be let your husband take the kids or make your husband do more around the house to help you out. These are not answers to my problems.
I wonder what it takes to start a non-profit. I would love to create a place where single moms can go to get the help they need, judgement free. There could be parenting classes, a gym, day care, mommy/daddy and me classes, workshops for single parents trying to go back to school or start their own businesses, a meditation center, a library of used book swap/store, all kinds of classes for the kids, a therapist on site, etc, etc, etc….on my. I’m going to have to look into this.
