So if dads are allowed to just decide they’re allowed to quit being a parent, why can’t mums?

So if dads are allowed to just decide they’re allowed to quit being a parent, why can’t mums?

Why are mums so quick to be judged when there’s “dads” out there who literally do FUCK ALL.

I let my child spend the day with a family member, I’m a bad mum.
I let my child get dirty in the mud, I’m a bad mum.
I take my eyes off of her for 2 seconds whilst I’m doing something, I’m a bad mum.
I spend my money on anything other than my child, I’m a bad mum.

But, what about the men that decided they weren’t going to love, look after and protect the little human they gave 50% to make.
What about the men that decided partying, drugs and everything else is more important than helping pay for the little human you helped create.
No one ever sits there and talks down and judges about how men who decided said they wanted to be parents, and then left because it was “too hard”.

But then when is single mums are having a bad day and we’re struggling on a day where it’s “too hard”. People throw phrases at us like

“Was Your Choice To Have A Baby”
“You Didn’t Have To Keep It”
“I Bet You Wished You Changed Your Mind On Having This Baby”
“Why Have A Baby If You Knew The Dad Didnt Want It”.

I’m so tired of young, & single mums being judged for the times they snap, or cry or our stressed because
WE as single parents don’t get a BREAK.
WE as single parents don’t get time to BREATHE
We as single parents do EVERYTHING for our babies.

So maybe when you’re seeing one of us having a rough day, instead of looking, judging and whispering to your friends or family about us. Come over and say hello, come over and ask if we’re okay. Because sometimes just that two minutes of talking to another adult, or getting a cuddle, is the pressure relief we need.
