I have been separated for ten months and I have 2 beautiful girls ages 3 years and 1 years old. They are my world! However, since asking my husband to leave I have realised that my old friends and I do not have much in common anymore.

"OMG. I really feel for you. My man has that same agreement that you were talking about. Thursday arvo - Monday morning but thats it every fornight. We are now in the process of gettin 50/50 as the oldest now 5.5yrs has been asking for a few months to stay with Daddy more. My ex wants nothing to do with my two kids so I am a little lucky their. But some females can make it very nasty for men to see there kids and I dont know why they do it. In the end its the childs choice and if they keep pushing they will only retaliate :S Some people out there dont deserve kids and no offence your so called partner DCL sounds like an arse for not helping more. My man would do 12hr days and 6hrs on a Sat but will always make time for my kids. Not even his. Sounds like he needs a wake up call as much as the rest of them in your story."
Having only one child is a good choice for me but I am struggling with it

"Thanks! I understand what your counsellor is saying and should also focus on the wonderful things of having one...but I guess there are always two sides to the coin. I think I'd cope better if it was more of a choice that I'd made..."
when my daughter was born everyone said she's the cutest thing and i felt that i have the world in my own hands. she was such an easy going child until she started to be aware ...

"my best friend has a daughter who is selective mute, the childs dad is the same way, with speech therapy sessions she can now talk alot more and even to me of which was a mission but i never pushed her to talk to me and she relaxed alot sooner.it takes time and patience and remember it's not anything you have done or your daughter.
Don't pressure her to talk to strangeres, she proberly just can't do it and never let her see you get angry as she will think poorly of herself and it will make matters worse ( my friend found that out the hard way)
i hope i had helped a little and all the best for the future, just remember she will improve with time"

So you want a well-mannered kid? It’s actually not that hard. But there is a catch; you have to be well-behaved yourself.
