    Someone on my FB had this to say about it in their status....

    "What NOT to brag about: being a single parent, but the other parent isn't dead. You chose a deadbeat.... You made dumb decisions DONT BRAG.#lovingthemindoftheprincess"

    Your thoughts?

    That's kinda harsh and everyone's situation is different, you don't know the circumstances behind the person being a single parent (mother or father)...they really say when u assume u make an a$$ of yourself. Smh.

    I take it that there seems to be a lot of men/women issues in the states. Everything about relationship is always seem to be wrapped in some battle blanket.

    Hum, well don't know!

    I find in interesting that people always refer to relationships that ended in such negative ways. Can't people just decide to go their own ways without having a loser? Everything in life have a start and an ending.

    I think the person was saying don't be proud of the single part...not to not be proud of the parent part.

    But while I know what they getting at, it's misguided to assume every man or woman that is a single parent and the other parent not dead, made a kid with a deadbeat. From you not married and you don't both live in the same household, you're a single parent.

    Some single parents are actually all alone with it, and some have the father involved, but they are still SINGLE parents if the other parent not in the same household.

    I hope the person who lashed out also realizes some single parents are male, and some may have slept with a deadbeat, some may have had other circumstances. There are plenty bad things that can prevent a parent being around and/or financially around before we get to the death option on the list. Trust.

    That said, the parents that are USUALLY bawling loud like true attention whores about their single parent status, ARE USUALLY the ones that fit what that poster lashing out against! Harping on your singleness like a badge of honour when it WASN'T any of the understandable situations why the other parent not inside the home with you, is really sad. Just do your job and talk about your time with your child without harping on how you're doing it alone. Women AND MEN do this...the men actually carry on worse about it because so few men are doing that...

    I've been both a single parent and NOT a single parent and nobody ever see me going on and on about the single part...just do weh yuh fi do an hush up it's annoying. Exception is of course when the actual conversation or source of the status (e.g. an article) has to do with single parenting. I'm not saying people can't rightly be happy with what they have overcome, but don't make it out like it's the thing to be cause then you just look mentally unstable.

    He's been watching too much BET or something...then again I don't know of women in the islands to go on and on about their single status as a parent...so whoever he hanging around picking up American cultural bad habits too it sounds like.
