Single Moms: Good Choices Vs. Bad Choices in Parenting (and Dating) by Jessica Lawrence
I constantly remind my daughter to "make good choices." Whether it is eating something a bit more healthy than her preferred ice cream sandwich, or doing homework before playing with her American Girl dolls, I often feel like I'm a broken record. Which made me think – am I always making the best choices?
A prime example is dating. If you've read what I've written before, you already know I am a single mom. I am the first to admit, I don't always make the right choices when it comes to dating. Ask any of my friends and they'll agree. However, I remember my grandmother telling me once that she would rather I date several people over time vs. settle for one who really isn't what I want at all.
The flip side of the coin is dating people who I know I can't "fix," which I think is something that is common with most women. Whether the person has a drinking issue or commitment issues, I want to be that person who makes them better.
Sadly, we all have to be responsible for our own selves. So, I try to help my daughter make good choices when it comes to her life and continue to plug forward on my own (sometimes not so good) choices.
