Hi everyone, I'm a dad of 3 girls age 8yrs, 3yrs and 5mths. the eldest is with my ex wife. the other 2 r produced by my gf and i who just abandoned us last week. I know this is a site for mummy but i hope to find some support group for single parents through here. currently i am taking care of my 2 girls alone.
Thanks. I am coping well. only thing my 3yrs old girl now cries easily even when i told her its time to sleep. my guess is that she feels she lost her mum's love. now i dont even scold her for any mistake she done which i did in the past. Only thing i can't cope is my emotion. every now and then images of our happier days still flash back in my mind and when that happens i can only cry in silence......
Brave daddy, you are most welcome to join in.
who looks after ya kids when you're working?
i am on mc for now as i under went 2 surgeries in oct and nov and now actually recuperating at home. i will look for a babysitter for them once i am fully recovered.
Hi, alfred. maybe you could join HELP when you are feeling better. Here's the link. Single Parent Support Group | HELP Family Service Centre
Welcome to the forum. It's a challenging for you and the girls, so do seek support from a family service centre.
I used to volunteer at Fei Yue Family Service Centre and I believe there are professionals available to guide you.
As for your elder girl, she may have difficulty expressing her real needs, so may use throwing tantrum to express unhappiness.
Give her lots of hugs and assurance of your love.
When she makes mistakes, you'd still need to correct her with gentle approaches. Young children thrive when limits are well-set.
