Parenting is hard work. All parents have times when they get angry or frustrated. But don't take out your feelings on your child. If you are worried that you might hurt your child.
Before having children, most people may picture a family with two parents. However, for many people, the reality is that they are the only parent. Although raising a child as a single parent can be challenging, it can also be rewarding. If we don't talk about the reality of motherhood, especially single motherhood, then women can't make informed decisions about whether to have children or not. If we don't make it known that most happiness studies say that mothers are no happier than childless women – sometimes quite the reverse – then women without children will always unnecessarily feel bereft.So here's the truth: it is relentless, worrying, emotionally-draining work. It is like a grey day with intermittent bursts of sunshine, and these occasional breaks in the cloud are what we mothers try to focus on. Single mothers can often feel isolated and overwhelmed, so it's important to feel that you have some sort of community behind you.
Instead of picking up the phone on your ex and getting out all your frustrations on him, as this just messes with his mind to, focus on yourself. I know sometimes this may make you feel like a selfish bitch, but believe me selfish is good sometimes.
When you find yourself gaining your strength, keep hold of this and keep reminding yourself of you at your strong points. Because in everyone's day we get weak. AT these WEAK moments its important to firstly be able to recognise when its a WEAK moment and what to and what not to do when this happens.
Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad was born Jacqueline Glover in New York City in 1951. After spending her early years in foster care, moving four times before the age of three, she settled in with her aunt, following her father’s passing.
While still in elementary school Samiyyah took an interest in helping other students do well, joining “The Future Teachers’ Club” in the fifth grade. As a high school student, Samiyyah became aware her people’s struggle for freedom—witnessing civil rights demonstrations, protests, assassinations and riots—and decided she wanted to help somehow. It was in this atmosphere that she went off to Northeastern University in Boston where she majored in Education. Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.
Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade. She has been blessed to carry on the 84-year educational tradition, which was started by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his brave followers in the 1930’s.
A widow after 35 years of marriage, Samiyyah presently enjoys the blessing of her and her husband’s nine children: six sons and three daughters, all of whom attended or are attending HBCUs. Samiyyah has been a mother to not only her nine children, but also to her two stepchildren, her nieces and nephews, her eight grandchildren and countless other children and adults in the community who come to her for advice, wisdom and guidance. Affectionately called MamaMiyyah, Samiyyah’s house is never empty
How many hoops are you willing to go through to conceive? How much can you handle emotionally? Some lesbians get pregnant really easy, given our means of conception through artificial insemination.

Peggy Hanson has lived more than twenty years in Yemen, Turkey, India, and Indonesia. She is an author and travel blogger who loves to share her international life with her readers. Growing up in a series of small towns in Colorado, the daughter of a mountain-climbing Congregational minister and teacher, probably helped mold her affinity to nomadism.
An avid mystery fan, Peggy draws on her background as a Peace Corps volunteer and International Broadcaster for the Voice of America to bring the world to her readers through the mystery medium. She finds it more fun to write fiction than to stick to facts as she did when she was a journalist, though she still tries to be as accurate as possible.
Join Peggy Hanson and me on Tuesday, August 5, 10-11 A.M. CT US, as we discuss the places she had lived in, the people she has met and her latest work, DEADLINE YEMEN, the second of her mystery series.
