In The Complete Single Mother by Andrea Engber and Leah Klungness, there's a reference to Margaret Mead's observation that "fatherhood is a social invention." It startled me into realizing that a woman raising a child by herself is as much a part of the natural order of things as an intact family. I immediately stopped feeling guilty that my son does not have a Dad around. I think that guilt hinders common sense, so once I got rid of the guilt, common sense took over and changed both of our lives for the better.

I recommend the book "Raising Your Child & Yourself: A No Nonesense Guide for Young Single Mothers. This book is great for young or teenage mothers that still have alot of growing up to do. Available at http://www.lulu.com/content/2528638.
