Kitkat73, I’m in a similar position with my 14 year old daughter refusing school. She’s ADHD and has social anxiety. I find it hard having to deal with all these things alone and also being the only adult making decisions. Even sometimes deciding what to have for tea can be tough…

My daughter sees her dad every so often but he’s by no means a Father and often makes her anger levels and anxiety worse.

It’s also hard having no time to myself as she doesn’t like spending too long away from me. When all you want to do is destress with your friends but she’s always in contact asking when I’m coming home.

Hugs to all you single parents… we are amazing xxx
