That is a crazy story, Dave.

You should be very happy with your accomplishment of raising the kids alone.  And as for your ex-wife...you're right, it's her loss as she has missed out on some of the best aspects of life.
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about??

why is it that the American public believe that dads are not as good at raising kids than moms, we don't get the fair shake.  My story is sort of like Dave's only instead of me raising kid, my dad raised 2 boys, through 3 marriages.  My mom left us when i was 2, did not come back, or try to contact us until i was 18... then she wants to be my best friend and what not... What the f*ck.. You can up and leave, and expect to be back in good graces... My dad did an outstanding job, and what could have turned out really bad, actually turned out good... One son in the military with an outstanding career, the other doing outstanding in everything else that he does... Both completely self dependent, and something that any parent would be proud of, yet fathers lose in child custody because of a misconception.... Sorry i am rambling also, this is just something that upsets me... sure times have changed, and it is supposed to be even playing ground... but i am sure we all know how it will work out most times... Ok thats enough...

Congrats DBarry on raising you kids by yourself... it is definitely a tough task, and from what it sounds like, you did an outstanding job.

I'm proud of you man!   I know it's not easy raising kids by yourself.   I got divorced about 6 years ago and for a couple of years I raised my 2 boys on my own.  They were 2 and 4 at the time of the divorce.  It's not easy.    But fortunately for me, I met a GREAT woman and we are raising 3 kids now.   It still has it's ups and downs.  But we love it!

Congrats to you for doing a great job!   Dads can raise kids on their own.  We might not have that "motherly instinct" that people always talk about, but we love our kids and we will do whatever it takes to raise them right!

yea, we will see if they open their eyes though.  It would probably take a long time to actually happen.
Congrats on all of your kids being successful.. This shows just how great you did at raising them.

Truly inspiring read for me as I am in the midst of my 5th year of raising my daughter pretty much on my own she now sees her mom but its not in a mother, daughter capacity.  My ex wants to be more of a friend and when there's the slightest hint of them getting into a disagreement she instantly wants me to come get her.  But, my daughter is doing better personally seeing her then she was not seeing her.  I no longer have to confront the teary eyes of why my mom don't love me and want to see me.  So, its a little better them seeing each other. 


I enjoy reading the success stories of the pioneers of the Single Dad movement.  It inspires me more then anything possibly can.  I thank you for sharing your Single Dadhood.

Thank you my friend. it makes me happy to see another father doing an awsome job raiseing there kids. It does get easyer as they grow older. Untill they grow up and leave home then the house feels so empty lol. How old is your daughter if you dont mind me asking.

congratz you got your kids that far!! i feel like that guy on you r post banging his head against the wall!!  i got 2 kids 7 year old girl and 5 year old boy on my 3rd year alone as a single daddie.  the ex just up and left on jan 1, 3 years ago, never heard or seen her since.  its a long hard road but worth every second i get to spend with the kiddos.  honestly im glad its just me and not her around to mess with their lives anymore.  Im in school when the kids are so i got the GI bill from the military and fin aid to take care of us all thank god.  we keep moving on...

i applaud all of the dads raising their kids on their own.  I am the product of one such thing.  My mom left my dad, my brother and i, when i was 2, and never looked back until we were grown up.  I know that it was tough for him, but we turned out ok, for the most part.  lol.  Just make sure you do not do what my dad did, and devoted more time to work and helping friends than his kids (not that i believe anyone is doing that).  That was the hardest part about having only my dad around.

Again i applaud you all.  You guys are doing some good stuff.

I have to agree with my buddy Mudd.  I just got custody of my almost 2 year old son 7 days ago.  I have always remained optimistic because of the father I know I am.  But stories like these are inspiring.

Thank you very much!
