A single mom is : The mother of the children is not married. It does not mean she can not take care of her children.

I raise my children completely on my own. When my mom was alive, she helped out so much that I didn't consider myself a single mom. A single parent is someone who's parenting alone. It can be interpreted in different ways.

A single mom is a mom raising her children without a partner living in the same house with her. Your ex is an idiot.

I don't think receiving cs or having a support system disqualifies anyone from being a single mom. A single mom/dad are the parent raising kids without a partner.

If you are the only adult on deck then you are a single parent no matter who else is supporting you. If there is another adult helping you AT HOME you might not be a single parent.

I've heard that before (single mom being only a single parent raising kids with zero support). My ex husband was under that belief as well. He griped about his ex wife calling herself a single mom because he paid CS. Said since she was getting some support, she wasn't a single mom.

A single parent is a parent raising the children in their home without a partner/other parent to the children. Having the ex involved with the kids and paying support does not change this definition.

One person being responsible for everything. A divorcee is not a single parent unless the other parent is a deadbeat or absent.

You wouldn't be with the father of your child but you would have someone to bounce ideas off of and moral support. That's huge.

I'm a single mom. In not with the father of my child. And I'm single. However, if I were to get with someone would that make me not a single mom? I'm not with the father of my child but if I remarry would that disqualify me as a single mom?

If you're single and not living with the father of your kids and you're essentially raising them in your home, with or without child support, then you are a single mom.

I always just said I was single- that is, unmarried. Divorced. Now my ex passed away so either way you look at it I'm a single mom. But I usually don't describe myself that way. If it comes up I'll say I have children.
