Is 8 and 4 close enough. Probably have stories of 'what not to do'.

I love them though and they were doing so good until their dad got his time with them and my oldest punched my youngest in the face at school.

And I have to fix it...as usual.

I am a single mom of 2 boys… ages 16 & 12. I love my guys but they are the age where on one hand they are a blast to be around… football, sports etc. But then there are times when I am oblivious in their eyes and the phone, xBox & computer are their best friends LOL. It is also hard being just mom because of no 'male figure' around. Dad is present when it is convenient to him *go figure* but by the grace of God, they are still grounded and great

I love my guys… looking forward to sharing more

I have three boys and they are fantastic! I have two birthdays in the next couple of weeks, one is turning 11 and one is turning 14. Quite frankly they are easy except the big one doesn't hug any more and I do the happy dance if we even have conversations these days!!

The challenge is the little one. He just turned 3 and is best described as a Force of Nature! Why do the crazy ones get given to us when we are 10 years older? So unfair, !

My biggest concerns are the toddler having such a long day at daycare now and having to shoulder the many sick days he has since he started this fall all on my own and keeping work happy. And...staring at these four walls every evening.

I have two boy's as well. 4 & 2, my current struggle is filling the lacking father figure in their life. I don't trust anyone, my fault I know, Anyone has any suggestions on safe places to look for male friends that may be trustworthy enough to fill the male gap?

@ Xcrunner2002

I am a single father myself raising 2 boys. I hate to say it but I doubt you can ever find as you would put it a trustworthy male figure especially right now in your situation. Now this is just my humble opinion and not exactly those of everyone on this site. You need to first care for you self while caring for your children. I have been separate pending divorce for 3 years now. I have found someone else to share my life with but sometimes i wonder if it is/was the right decision for me to make. You need to look at things by what is right for the children especially younger ones. I was forced to take a co-parenting class as we are going thru the hearings now for the divorce and custody and it is funny as this is not my first divorce that I am going thru this again. But it has shown me a perspective of things I have overlooked, such as how going thru these classes again can help me help others. You need to really look at, as hard as it may be, to get absent parent working with his child. Though you may have anger and resentment in your heart finding someone else to take this place may/may not have an adverse affect on your child.

Just my two cents.....

Thanks for your advice. I have been steadily trying to keep their father involved, it was a really sticky/difficult divorce. Its been difficult in the respect that everything I try to have the boy's involved in, sports, church groups, etc, he takes offense too, and will become very upset over it. I have finally, and I mean actually just recently, just decided to take it all in stride, and not personally take any offense, nor let the boys chance to grow and mature be affected by how he acts/reacts.

I fully agree on taking care of myself first, I have been getting help for a couple of months now, and its been the best thing that could happen to me
