That is the reason i enrolled ds in daycare, he doesn't attend anymore as i have no way to get him there.
Doesn't matter If i am single or partnered,
When single dss father sees him 6 hours a week (dinner, bath and bedtime) when partnered Dss father games the entire time he is not at work,
Today i have held ds since 7 am as he is very sick, his father 'cant' take him cos he is gaming.
When i do get him to settle out of my arms i have alot of housework to do.

I think too much gets blamed on mental illness these days.
Some people are just bad parents. Straight up.
Mental illness is a very real thing and many people suffer from it but I refuse to call selfish, immature, ignorant people mentally ill because that is disrespectful to people actually suffering mental illness.
Seems like Everytime you stuff up instead of owning it you can just say you are sick and the pity party comes to your rescue.
Having your priorities messed up and being mentally ill are two different things.
I think my friend is mentally ill. I've suspected it for some time. And I do believe her shopping while going without basics is a part of it.
Was just pondering. No need to get upset.
Sorry if I offended anyone, I just fail to see how making selfish choices is bad. It is bad if it adversely affects the child/ren, but if everything is ok and you can afford the time and money, doing things for selfish reasons can be a positive thing. But if people want to assume otherwide and look for reasons to be offended, I really can't do much about that.
Fair enough Janesmum
For some it is mental illness. My old boss was a terrible father, he did go out drinking all of the time. He was a raging alcoholic.
Sure, some are just stoopid. But I don't think dismissing them all as idiots when some do have mental health issues is helpful either.
Are you a psychiatrist? Yeah - didn't think so If you were you wouldn't have written that post.
I think you'll find things like alcohol abuse are often caused by mental illness. As are becoming addicted to different things, even shopping to extreme when you have no money - it is self destructive behaviour and a lot of the time is linked to mental illness.
