Seeing your kids constantly being let down by the other parent.
Getting no financial help from the other parent and always having to say no to the children when they ask for treats.
Having to rely on my mum for childcare as there is no other option in the local area (rural area, childcare located in nearest town which is 7 miles away).
Feeling lonely when the kids are in bed. Stuck in a rut of work and housework unless finances are good.
