It’s a tremendous responsibility, and even though you want to do the best you can for your child, single parents face circumstances that could cause them to "burn out" at a faster pace than families with shared responsibility of the day to day demands of special needs parenting.

The challenges may seem impossible, but there are ways that single parents can create a unique and pleasant lifestyle for themselves and their children.

I do what I feel I must, and as far as the men I have met, strangely enough it has not been a problem.

If a man does not appreciate me and my grandson, he is not good enough for me, and definitely not the man I am looking for.

You are not alone, there are many parents of children with special needs that enjoy caring for their child and are also addressing these same issues every day.

He's a fact of life and a part of my life and I wouldn't trade him, or his sister for the world. But I'm going to be dating a lot more soon (well, hopefully I am...) and I don't really know whether I should talk about my disabled kid or just talk about my kid and mention his disability at a later time.

"Just let him meet David, then explain that he's a child with autism.

Once he's met him, the word won't be so scary."She's right.

Parenting as a single parent is difficult enough in "normal" circumstances, but when your child has special needs, there's an even greater level of difficulty.
