Dallas Single Mom wants to hear from the guys. As part of a new “he said, she said” format for the Dallas Single Mom franchise there are some works to collaborate with some awesome single dad or experienced single dad writers. I think the challenges and the victories that go along with being a single parent can be shared by both genders and provide a great forum to bounce ideas off of each other. As an example, how do single dads and single moms differ on cooking for the kids? How do you balance chores? How about differences in opinion with your ex? Many of these issues will continue to be issues but how do we make life easier from both a guy’s perspective and a woman’s perspective. This will be the beginning of a new website devoted to single dads.
Here are some FAQ’s I put together on the collaboration and questions I received from individuals:
1) You are female, what do you know about single dads?
I date them. I am friends with single dads. I know nothing about what their lives are like which is why I’m asking for writers and contributors. My main goal is to run the site, market the site and provide valuable information to both single moms and dads.
2) Dads don’t read blogs, women make purchasing decisions and only stay at home moms read blogs.
Obviously this is not a question and it was a statement made by Controls Freak.com – Abel. I’m not linking to his site but I have the text message to prove his short-sightedness. Dads have relevant thoughts and are a major force in the marketplace. They make buying decisions and as single fathers, they pay child support and want some influence on buying decisions as it pertains to their kids. Don’t get me wrong some single fathers and single mothers don’t fulfill their roles as impeccable as others but don’t give up hope on a person’s ability to want to be a better parent. Fathers get aand single dads also get a bad rap with terms like “deadbeat dads” etc. I think single mothers need to champion their single dad brothers and work together to figure out that Mars and Venus may be planets but there are still ways to connect. Many single dads I know do fantastic things. One single dad I know is always conscientious of his child’s mental health and reasoned that he himself need therapy for his own “unwillingness to commit.” I personally believe in this day and age single fathers are recognizing their own emotional needs as more than just provider.
