Guess I'm the full time single dad that has the oldest kid. Or rather had, she just recently turned eighteen and bolted.

Be prepared single dads.....when your child leaves and there is nobody to back your emotions once they've left.....it is MORE gutwrenching than than a wife of many years leaving. At that point you have made them your world....and then the world suddenly shatters leaving you drifting in space...ALONE.

I just thought it should be known.

What did you do to make her life so miserable that she bolted??? The way you describe it you make it sound like she Wants NOTHING to do with you??? I can't believe that after having raised her by yourself... Though I'm sure it is possible...
I feel for you, I couldn't imagine my son wanting nothing to do with me in 11 years... He tries that I'll hunt him down...
Truely sorry for you dude...

Famous words to live by when raising children... "I Brought You In This World, And I'll Take You Out, And It Won't Make A Bit Of Difference To Me, I'll Make Another One That Looks Just Like You..."

the one thing I shouldn't have done.....spoiled her rotten.

I'm one of those "horrid" parents that wouldn't let her hang out with the wrong crowds and be a party animal. She felt soooo put upon because of it.

We talk almost every day now. I think she's figuring out that things aren't going to go her way. But she's mule headed and hates to admit when she's wrong. It'll just take time. Time for me to adjust to her being gone from the house, and time for her to figure out that the world won't revolve around her no matter how much she pouts and demands.

Another thing to remember is that girls may be gentler and more cooperative than boys while raising them, but with boys you don't have to worry about the becoming pregnant and having a child before they are ready. Wait....that's not entirely true...a boy knocking up a young lady is almost as bad....but different. You know what I mean?

You should have put all that in your other post...

Good that you all are talking... If things go bad for her, just let her know that she always has a place, most important thing you can do...

No one wants to think that the world doesn't revolve around them...

I know what you mean, because the boy can deny it or choose to have nothing to do with the baby... Sad but true...

I couldn't imagine giving up my child or any future children... I just don't know how others do it...

Well I dont know how other woman feel about single dads, but I myself am a single mom and I think id prefer dating a single dad because they know what single moms go through. They deal with similar stress. I think single dads are special people considering I have two children and one of there fathers doesnt see her.

now where was this board 7 yrs ago when I needed it...raised em from 6,8 & 9
they are now 19,21, 23
and I wouldn't have changed one minute of it for anything or anyone.

Note for future reference...when child is mad becuase you have to ground/timeout...make em answer the question........Have I ever punished for doing something right or good?

my boy recently told me he hated that comment 'cause he knew I was right....hehehe

I have been a single dad for 3yrs now. I had full custody for 2.5yr after she abandoned her family, 1yrold boy, new house and 2 cars. I am a good father and was a good husband. After a few years she decices she wants joint custody, after not hardly seeing her child and she gets it. I am bitter at the courts. This is just not right. If your looking for other single dads out there you are looking for a network. I am with you man I understand the BS situation that is our plight. For all you stupid ignorant loser dads out there get a clue and stop making my life so hard.

I'm 28 , going through a divorce and have been a full time "single" dad for about 2 months now. I have our 2 boys (7 & 3), she has our baby girl. Since she left i have totally changed my ways and have never been a better dad than i am now. It's hard but stepping up and doing what's right for my boys was the best thing i ever did. She hardly sees them, maybe 6 hours out of the week. Too busy with her "career" and who knows what else to even pick up the phone. As for my baby girl, i only get to see her maybe 3 hours on Sundays or whenever she decides to bring her over. I'm hoping the court will change that though.

I did not write anything, now isn't that special? Get back to us in a few years hopefully you will not have an answer but in the off chance. You will be raising 5 kids with a sixth on the way. The teen girls tend to get booted and go live with boyfriend.

I am a full-time single dad of 2 great kids you are not alone!!!!!!!!!! I have found that if you want to date the best thing you can do for your life and your children is to date a single mom hey THEY GET IT ! of coarse most of the women I have dated have not even met my kids that takes a while for me to open that door. But when I have they have been great! And most of them have respected that choice I made to keep it seperate for as long as it takes to be certain "who" I'm dating

if you are a dad then your a full time dad, if the children are at their moms and you get a call at 3:30 am from the hospital saying that one of your children has just been taken to the ER but by the time you hear the reason your already halfway to the hospital wearing nothing but your boxers and a pair of mismatched womens shoes then your a dad if you don't then your just a sperm donor.

case and point, if your a dad your a dad full time, part time it doesn't matter

PS. that happend twice with my youngest, i made a 1.5 hour drive to the hospital in 20 mins at 1:40AM over a splinter

I'm here too. Single Dad of one 11 year old girl and very very proud of her. She is part of the package and any woman interested in me has to be ready for that.
