Single dad and dating
Even still, for those single dads out there reading this and feeling like they are struggling…That should be okay as well.We should help those fathers who want to be better and not shun them because at the end of the day, it is all about growing, learning and “The biggest misconceptions I found with regards to being a single dad, is the belief that the inherent bond between child and dad can never compare to that of a mum, that fathers lack the ability to solve problems on their own and the essential instincts that are vital as a parent are lacking.” We have all at some point heard those inspiring stories of how hard single mums have worked bringing up their kids, putting food on the table and holding down a job.

A post shared by Sharline Nabulime (@sharlinenabulime) on The laws regarding dads in general are still dated in many countries across the world: – In Australia the ‘Lone Fathers Association’ was set up back in 1973 and for decades they have been fighting to support and help single dads fight the unjust laws towards them.First of all, in a world filled with hope & optimism for equal opportunities & progression, there are still many equally imbalanced viewpoints that are ignored and swept under the carpet.
This is even more the case when the topic of discussion doesn’t move with the status quo being promoted at any given time.
Is it any less of an inspiring story for a dad to be able to achieve the same feats?
The pressures are the same but with less help, advice and awareness available, it may not be as easy for single fathers to obtain support with fears of failing & judgement at the forefront of their minds.
The life of single dads today is more complex than it ever has been before.
For example, 90 percent of dads in that country are responsible for paying child support, and the backlash of the law, media and communities in many cases have lead to suicide that remains unreported.
