Happy Two Year Blogiversary!
Would you believe that I’m still surprised that it's been two years since I started my blog, Daisha Renee? If you are a newbie here, my blog provide powerful and practical solutions for overwhelmed single moms who struggle with balancing all the components of single motherhood.
Topics ranging from self-care, money management, child custody agreements, child support, deadbeats, single motherhood of course, depression and so much more. I also provide TONS of freebies to help eliminate everyday overwhelm and maximize productivity.
I initially started my blog with the intent of getting my thoughts off paper and here online to help with my depression. Then as I was writing my story, I knew I really wanted to share with other single moms who were mostly likely going through the same thing.
Blogging has been an effective way to communicate what I was going through, and by doing so letting other single moms know that it is okay to share their pain. It's good to know that while I'm really blogging to help with my own demons, I'm helping another mother fight hers as well.
Below are the top five blog post for the Rockin’ Single Motherhood community. If you haven’t the chance to read these posts, click the link to the their post below. Please also feel free to share with other single moms you may know to help them with their journey through single motherhood as well.
HERE ARE 5 OF OUR MOST POPULAR POSTS FROM 2018:
So let me start by saying that this post is mostly for single moms who are mostly parenting on their own. No co-parenting schedules or whatever, just solo dolo. We as single moms work our asses off to provide the best life for our children despite our "shortcomings".
So you can imagine how pissed she gets when she hears through her local community or social media that the absent or deadbeat father of her child is slandering her name. Laying claims that he doesn't see the kids because SHE won't let him.
I have seen this before I even became a single mom and I was the least surprised by this. It's called self-preservation folks. Rather than flat out saying he doesn't want to be a dad, he places all the blame on the mom because it's easy to blame to bitter, hung up baby mama.
Did you know that single moms are at a higher risk for depression and anxiety? Being a single mom is overwhelming and depleting. Some mothers like myself are fortunate enough to have family who shares the burden, but some are not as lucky. As single moms we have a tendency to downplay how overwhelmed we really are, and turn away support when it's offered.
If you are feeling lonely and isolated it's important to reach out to your family for emotional support. Trust me when I say it takes a village to raise a child. There is no gold metal for going at it alone. It does not make you any less of a mother and there is no glory in it. It's best to get a handle on this now, then to let if fester before it starts affecting your children.
Why are single mother's demonized for holding deadbeat fathers accountable? Every day more and more single moms who are being shamed for evening thinking of filing for child support. Is it really okay that a fully-grown man, who is out there having his fun, abandon his responsibilities?
Everyday social media displays more memes basically shaming single mother's who file for child support. This topic is a tricky subject all around. A lot of people, parents, and non-parents see child support as a revenge tactic. Not as a means for the custodial parent to provide for the child.
You know that a fathers role is crucial in the upbringing of a child. Especially because of how men and women parent differently. Eliminating the father all together does give children a disadvantage.
Statistics show that too many children suffer from psychological effects from growing up fatherless. Children require love and support from both parents, and unfortunately, that's not always the case. Here are some tips on how to talk to your child about their absent dad.
Society often shames single moms when it comes to sex. As if every single mom is promiscuous and gives it up to every man she meets. That is slut-shaming we are dealing with here. Single moms should not have a sex life when the reality is that there is nothing wrong with it.
Why is it okay for a single father to date or just have sex, but it is highly frowned upon for the mother? Does the world truly believe we should ALWAYS be home taking care of our little ones? Little does everyone who is NOT a single mom knows that you can have a perfectly healthy and safe sex life as a single mom.
