    ...but I can’t write about it on here. Is there anyone who would mind if I wrote it in a conversation to get their opinion? I’d be very grateful. It’s nothing work related but concerns home arrangements/kids/single parenthood. Thanks in advance! OTH x

    Happy to contribute although I haven’t been a single parent.

    Ditto and I suspect having experience as a single parent may be really crucial. If not, you know what to do. and remember you can have 6 people in one conversation to get a balance.

    I think any of us would be happy to listen OTH, bearing in mind we may not have had the experience you want to talk about. Maybe that might help though?

    Yeah. I'm available. I left my husband when my kids were 6 and 4 so I have a teeny bit of experience.

    Likewise, am about a fair bit at the mo as I'm off work. Not single parent but step family experience might help?
    Whatever you choose, hope things work out for you.

    Wrong sex to be a single mum, but happy to try and advise.

    Thank you all so much. I’ve just got home and will send a message shortly. Sorry, one reason why I hate social media is because people write mysterious things inviting attention but this really isn’t my intention, I’m just genuinely needing help and my situation is too tricky to air in public!
