    My daughter is 2 and a half and since she was born her father never provided for her. When I was in labor my mother contacted his mother and she said "He is sleeping right now, I ll let him know when he wakes up." He wasn t there when his daughter was born. Other people came to see her before he did. After that he would come once a week for about 30 minutes to my house to see her. Than after about like 4 months his mother and stepfather came over asking to get her during the weekends at their house. I said yes because I wanted my daughter to be able to see her family. After time they stopped giving me that money and would supply diapers. Over a year later he still didn t have a job. He would never come over to pick her up or drop off his daughter but would be at their house. Now she s in daycare 5 days a week that his mom and stepfather pay for along with providng diapers. Still her dad never comes to pick her up or drop her off. They pay for my monthly bus pass to get to and from daycare to pick her up. They have her Thursday and Friday and every other weekend now. I want to know if even though they get her almost and equal amount of time and supply some things can I still take her father for child support. I rarely ever see him and I m tired of him not being involved. I know it would help to get money every month from her father to help get her clothes and other things for her since he doesn t provide or come here ever. Please give me any info or advice you can provide me.

    I'm about to give birth to my new baby girl in a couple of months... although I'm excited to have a child of my own I'm not looking forward to it so much based on my current situation. I'm young, still living at home with my single mom in a state away from my close family & relatives. Our relationship is beyond disfunctional and toxic. I've tried several times to communicate with her effectively so we can break the cycle & find a way to peacefully get along for the sake of my child. For 23 years, we haven't lasted a week without arguing. I want to be the best loving mother I can be, unfortunately due to my situation I have no choice right now than to raise my child around my mom. It honestly scares me as a parent to bring my child into this cycle of a toxic & unhealthy relationship my mother and I have. I'm running out of options, it's very stressful.

    I m 16 and recently all I can think about is wanting a baby. Before anyone comes at me and judges me, I KNOW I am too young to have a child and I really don t plan on having one in actuality. I would never bring a child into the world unless I was sure I could give the child a good life. Why else would I be posting this instead of going out there and getting knocked up? But for real I need help. I am not willing to have a child but that s all I seem to want. I want it with all my heart and I know it s just hormones that are happening because humans evolved in a way that teen bodies are the best for pregnancy. But I can t do this lmao. HELLLPPPPP.

I know its bull, but I keep thinking about it and can t stop. What do I do. A part of the reason could be I am white living on the border where I am the only white soccer player on the team.

  • Why did he act this way when I told him that I was not pregnant?

    Best answer: You can adopt children or even foster there are so so so many kids and teens who need homes, that also means he really wants children and he is an emotional guy.

    Best answer: FInd a friend or stranger who'll be willing to carry your baby for free or very little thatll significantly decrease the cost. Make sure you find and have them sign a contract thatll be legally binding so she cant decide to keep the baby when it's time to give it up to you. look for Grant's or other funding for fathers who want kids.They can sometimes help pay for the expenses. I'd start applying now to any you find spaces are limited per year. Ask your doctor for the resources as well. if nothing else consider doing payment plans if the facility allows it. Sometimes you can get by with paying 80 bucks a month. Which isnt bad.

    I'm in the same boat, except I'm a transguy. My best friend will be my surrogate, using my egg and me buying sperm. Since I've known her for 12 years, theres no need to go through the courts. But between the fertility boosting medicine to extract eggs and pregnancy methods itll still be 20k. So I'm looking into Grant's that will pay for medicine and treatments.

  • Why is spanking children so comman?

    Best answer: Because it's easy to do and most people don't know anything about child psychology. When people with no knowledge of child psychology make the laws, things like hitting a child become legal under the guise of good disciplinary practices. Mainly in the south. No one should be allowed to hit a child.

  • Did my women cheat on me?

    Best answer: There's no reason for you to suspect that your wife might have cheated on you, or that the child isn't yours. A DNA test isn't needed.

    Best answer: There's no reason for you to suspect that your wife might have cheated on you, or that the child isn't yours. A DNA test isn't needed.

    Your child is the result of the combination of the genes of you, your wife, and both sets of grandparents and great-grandparents. There's no way of knowing which combination of genes your baby is going to inherit, or "who" it's going to end up looking like when it's born. Your child has light skin, blond hair, and blue eyes. Your daughter has inherited more of the genes from your wife's side of the family than it did from yours. If YOUR grandparents or great-grandparents had any Caucasian genes anywhere in their background ... well, there you go!

    You are Black and your wife is Caucasian. Your child is of "mixed" race. "Mixed race" Black and Caucasian babies' skin tone often appears somewhat "white" in the early weeks after birth, and their eye color is often blue. Your daughter's skin tone and hair color may well begin to "darken" somewhat before she is even 3 months old. Her eye color probably won't change. A baby's whose eye color is going to be brown is born with brown eyes.
