Single Mothers OF Boys
Single Mothers of Boys

Please pray for ALL single mothers raising sons. There are many of us out there that need your prayers. Pray That these single mothers Raise their young boys up to know respect, honor, love, faithfulness and a love for God and Family.

I am a single mother to a son that is 12 years old. I have heard so many different things about how single mothers are portrayed. I have heard people talk about how boys especially are in trouble because of this. All these statements have merit BUT, I have been a single mother for 11 years. My son love God, He has altar Served at Church. He loves his family, friends. He is a well adjusted young man that was raised by a single mother. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers and for all single mothers with son's that we continue to raise them with values and morals that would please God.

Dear SpiritedAnn: I am the mother of three sons, ages 43, 41, and 23. I am also the grandmother of 5 sons ages 14 to 23. I also have two great grandsons. And by the way, my name is Ann. I have learned that the best way to raise boys is to keep them close to God, family and church. I never overburdened them, but I let their spiritual and christian experience become a part of their daily experience. You can't rely on the church, school, or society to help you instill the values in your child that would save his life and his soul. We must be in the position to know what our sons are being taught. Keep him away from bad company. Find his gifts and talents, his interests and enable him to find himself in them. If it is music, sports, computers, etc. always provide a teaching experience for him to keep his interest positive and allow him to forge friendships with people whom are also positive. Keep negative people from your doorsteps. Separate dating from parenting. Your child deserves your love and attention. Your deserves it to, but don't mix them until (pray, and you'll know when). Ann, my oldest is a truckdriver, the other a social worker, and the third just completed college. The grandsons are doing great. But the two who grew up in an environment of parental negligence and abuse, are full of anger, don't know God as their Savior, and are in danger falling at risk. I pray diligently for them and I do my best to help them. So Ann, single motherhood isn't sooooo hard, and it has wonderful, loving rewards. It is only when the single mother shows emotional abuse, spiritual void, lack of love and neglect to develop even the most basic of skills, she loose, and so does her sons and society. Money isn't always the problem, it is our lack of wisdom and our selfish, stingy hearts.
Pray unceasingly.....

I have been a single mom for 16 years but if you include all the time that my husband and I separated it would be more like 19 years. My sons are entering adulthood and although I fear the empty nest I thought that life would be more easy now. I was wrong. All three of us struggle with mental illness. My oldest son has severe anxiety and hypochondria. He is twenty and in community college and lives with my parents who live close to the college four days a week and with me the other three because he still works in town. My younger son is eighteen and suffers from severe depression, anxiety and ADHD (not the catchall phrase kind, the real thing). We are all at the stage where we want different things but they seem to oppose each other. I have been living in an abusive situation for six years because the area where the kids highschool is located is very expensive and I felt guilty for making them move again. We have been back and forth between Connecticut and South Carolina. We should have stayed in South Carolina but I was told the high school in Connecticut was so much better. It wasn't true. Anyway, I need to get out of this relationship and my older son wants me to stay here, I can't afford to. He says, "Just get another man". I've had more than enough of that trying to find them a good father. My younger son wants to move on but just can't get his act together. My brother is willing to help him but we're not sure where to start. His ADHD makes driving nearly impossible (he's had his license six months and has had two major accidents). We don't live anywhere where he can find a job to walk to or on a bus line, so he's unemployed. I'm torn in so many directions, looking out for me finally, looking out for them because that is where my heart always turns, like all of us moms, kids first. To top it off I am on SSI for numerous chronic conditions, mental and physical, so the monetary aspect of all this plays a huge part. Please pray that there is an answer that will be good for all of us. My kids are my best friends and the loves of my life but I also need to start thinking of me somewhat. Thank you so much for listening! Lots of love...

I pray for the single mom who feels like a failure. GOD lift her up work thru her children letting her know that you are there every step of the way-- in this troubled world we seem to focus on what we are not getting rather than what has been given and what is going to be. GOD show this single mother how to find patience in a hurried selfish world and give her strength to stay focused on you and your glory. I too am a single mother of 2 boys and beleieve in beauty of prayer. Dear Jesus let the sunlight of the spirit shine everyday for these women and their children. Teach us thru humor and LOVE that you will forever have our best interest and our backs. Also let us laugh at ourselves and the world and be servents of your peace.

PRAISE THE LORD! At once, I too was a single mother with one son raising him alone even after his birth. I too heard,read and even dealth with some issues of my son. My son to was raised in the church and around family, but it didn't stop him from rebelliousness. Whether it was then or now, the key is to always keep him prayer before the Lord. Live the life of CHRIST before him and most of all don't stop loving him. Lord, lend your guiding hand to this family. Let her know she is not alone with her son and that the help she need lies in you. Order his steps that he make walk worthy unto you. In Jesus Name,Amen. GOD BLESS YOU!
