|Gingy & Hannah at Jeneece's place|
I've been dating Gingy(we'll call him that) for a few months now and its been great! He's been so understanding and helpful. It's really nice to have a supporting and loving man in my life. He's obviously not trained to help me with Hannah but he does what he can. Doesn't mind driving to Victoria to visit us when were in the hospital, would even bring Hailey to see me on long hospital stays. He has a daughter(we'll call her Blondy) that's 5, who loves the girls to pieces.
I wanted to explain being in a relationship but still being a single parent.
A single parent is a parent not living with a spouse or partner. A person that has all the responsibilities of raising a child or children.
Being a parent is providing...
Physical/Bodily Care and Attention
Bodily Health & Well being
-Warmth & Comfort
- Food & Drinks
-Daily Exercise & Fresh Air
- Stimulation & Play materials: Toys, books, ect.
Mental/Emotional Care and Attention
- By encouraging child to use their mid for; thinking, imagination & pretend play, symbolic play
- To try top understand & help child to manage feelings
- Build their mind( Mentalise) by providing; boundaries, structure, consequences, self discipline, guidance, expectations
So even though I am in a relationship and am not single, I am still a single parent and will be untill me and my partner live together and share some of the responsibility of "parenting".
