EDITORIAL

Paying homage to all mothers on Mother’s day- May 12!

T here is no secret how important it is for a society to have the traditional

nuclear family structure where there are two married heterosexual parents, and with parents who are dedicated to social- izing their children to become assets to the community in which they belong. However, since we are not living in a perfect world, not every child will have the privilege to be in a household where there are two parents living to- gether. This truth causes many parents to do it on their own. According to the U.S. Census Bu- reau in 2018, there are 35.7 million sin- gle-person households, comprising 28 percent of all households. In 1960, sin- gle-person households represented only 13 percent of all households and those parents were responsible for raising 22 million children. Single fathers are far less common than single mothers, constituting 16 per- cent of single-parent families. This is compared with the 81 percent of single parent homes headed by a female. In other words, there are more sin- gle-parent households that are headed by women in the US. Hence, there are more single mothers in the US than single fa- thers. This has led to many social chal- lenges for single mothers. Research shows that a lot of single mothers are financially strained, socially isolated, face decision pressure, guilt, and fatigue. While these are crucial chal- lenges for single mothers, statistics show that many of them have stepped up the achievement ladder as it pertains to them accessing higher education.

The number of mothers attending college has more than doubled. Between 1999 and 2012, the report says 58 per- cent of single moms attended college or have at least a bachelor’s degree. For millennial moms who have babies out- side of marriage, 67 percent have some college education, and 32 percent have four or more years of higher education. Single motherhood is a challenge by default. But according to the statistics, these mothers in the census report did not allow the challenges to take them out but to propel them to become better for themselves and their children. So cheers to the mothers who are doing their best for the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Dominican Republic, China and Jamaica top New York City immigrants

By Kimmy Blair Contributing Writer Dominican Republic, China and Jamaica are among the foreign nations where an esti-

mated 3.2 million immigrant New Yorkers list as their country of origin, according to recent census report. The 3.2 million is the largest number in the City’s history. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau America Community Survey 2017 recently published in the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs’ Annual Report for 2018, the number of immigrants from Mexico has been on the decline in New York City while populations from the Dominican Republic and China continue to grow. The following numbers represent the data from the Top 10 countries where New York City immigrant residents hail from:

Dominican Republic, 449,338 or 14.3 per- cent; China 365,885 or 11.6 percent; Ja- maica 169,067 or 5.4 percent; Mexico 156,212 or 5.0 percent; Guyana 134,120 or

4.3 percent; Ecuador 128,000 or 4.1 percent;

Bangladesh 95,566 or 3.0 percent; Haiti

84,358 or 2.7 percent, and India 78,842 or

2.5 percent.

The report also revealed that the current undocumented immigrant population in NewYork City is an estimated 477,000, a de- cline from 672,000 in 2008. “This mirrors national trends where the overall undocumented population has been on the decline since 2008. This can be the 2008 housing market collapse, improved economic conditions in Mexico, as well as heightened enforcement at the border,” the

report observes. Immigrants comprise nearly 37 percent of the city’s population and 44 percent of its workforce. The foreign-born population re- sides in all corners of the five boroughs. Cer- tain neighborhoods, primarily in Queens and Brooklyn and parts of the Bronx and Man- hattan, have particularly high concentrations of immigrant residents. All five boroughs have significant immigrant populations, in- cluding undocumented immigrants. Approximately 56 percent of immigrant New Yorkers are naturalized U.S. citizens. An estimated 660,000 immigrant New York- ers who are lawful permanent residents (such as green card holders) are potentially eligible to be naturalized. The city has significant linguistic diver- sity: more than 200 languages are spoken by residents across the five boroughs. The top 10 languages of foreign-born New York City residents who are Limited English Proficient (LEP), meaning that they speak English less than “very well,” are: Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Bengali Korean, Haitian, and Ara- bic.

Nearly half of immigrant New Yorkers, age 25 or older, have attended some college or have graduated from college. These rates are notably higher for naturalized U.S. citi- zens. About 33 percent of undocumented im- migrants living in New York City have less than a high school diploma, compared to ap- proximately 32 percent of those with green cards and other status, 21 percent of natural- ized U.S. citizens, and 10 percent of U.S.- born citizens .

Woman arrested for illegal silicone injections

B ronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark announced that a Bronx

woman has been indicted for Assault and other charges for allegedly car- rying out an illegal silicone cosmetic procedure on a 39-year-old woman. The defendant allegedly con- ducted a dangerous, illegal cosmetic procedure that left the victim with substantial pain. According to the investigation, on or about February 10, 2018, in the defendant’s home, Castillo con- ducted an unauthorized cosmetic procedure and injected silicone sub- stance into the body of a 39-year-old Bronx woman.

The botched procedure, which was done in an effort to enhance the buttocks of the victim, left her with extensive infections and pain in her buttocks and thighs. The victim also has to undergo surgery to remove most of the tissue in the affected area. The defendant, who does not have a license to practice medicine or cos- metic surgery, was indicted in second- degree Manslaughter, Criminally Negligent Homicide and Unautho- rized Practice earlier this year for a separate procedure in which a woman died. Anyone with information about other possible victims of the defen- dant are encouraged to call the 43rd Precinct.

Measles Cases Rise to 466

BROOKLYN:

S ince May 7, some 466 cases of measles

have been confirmed since the begin-

ning of the outbreak last October. 379 cases (81%) have oc- curred in Williamsburg (ZIP codes 11205, 11206, 11211, 11249), which has been under an Emergency Order issued April 9 requiring those who live or work in these ZIP codes to have been vaccinated with the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine (MMR). There have been

ish community. Two of these cases oc- curred in students who attend New York

City public schools; both students had a re- ligious exemption that allows them to at- tend school without being vaccinated. These individuals did not attend school while in- fectious. All three of these cases reported spending time in areas of NYC with known measles activity. “Right now, we still see a highly localized outbreak in the Williamsburg community, even though there have been spo- radic infections outside of the neighborhood,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot. “One reason we have not seen secondary

infections outside this com-

munity is because so many people are vaccinated, underscoring the importance of vaccination. We want to urge people to remain calm. The best way to protect yourself as well as family, friends, neighbors and fellow New Yorkers is to make sure that you are immune from the measles if you have not already done so.”

Corrections officers charged with illegally strip-searching women

MANHATTAN:

S ix female corrections officers have been charged with illegally strip-searching

women who visited the Manhattan Detention Center, the Manhattan District Attorney's of- fice announced Monday. According to court documents, the cor- rections officers routinely strip-searched fe- male visitors without their consent. This included forcing the visitors to remove their pants and underwear, touching the visitors’ breasts, and examining the visitors’ private areas. Leslie-Ann Absalom 53, a former DOC captain, DOC officers Daphne Farmer, 49, Jennifer George, 32, Lisette Rodriguez, 51, Alifa Waiters, 45, and Latoya Shuford, 36, have been all charged with official miscon- duct, unlawful imprisonment, conspiracy and various counts of filing false documents. In order to cover up the unlawful searches, four of the officers filed false pa- perwork with the DOC and the Manhattan DA's office claiming the visitors gave con-

sent for the strip search, prosecutors said. The paperwork led to the arrest of three visitors whose charges were based on the il- legal searches. All six corrections officers have been suspended without pay. “People visiting

loved ones in our city’s jails should feel safe, period," DOC Deputy Commissioner of Pub- lic Information Peter Thorne. "If these alle- gations are proven true, the officers involved face termination. They have already been suspended.”

“There is no excuse for violating the human rights of New Yorkers visiting our City’s jails," District Attorney Cy Vance said . "As alleged, these officers flagrantly abused their power when they ignored their training and subjected visitors to humiliating and un- lawful searches. Further, they attempted to cover up their actions by forcing visitors to sign consent forms under false pretenses, and repeatedly lying in official documents. COBA President Elias Husamudeen re- leased the following statement: “Manhattan Detention Center Correction Officers as- signed to the Visit Area, arrested more than 50 visitors last year alone for attempting to smuggle in heroin, marijuana, cocaine, K-2 synthetic, razors, scalpels and other contra- band. Everyday they do everything they can to keep this jail safe for visitors, inmates and correction staff. They deserve more public support for the diligent professionalism they exude every day.”

Lawyer Gets five years in prison for illegal immigration scheme

A n immigration attorney based in Queens, has been sen-

tenced to five years in prison in connection with operating a scheme to submit more than 100 fraudulent asylum applications for Caribbean and other immigrants to immigration authorities in the United States. Andreea Dumitru, 43, was sen- tenced on Wednesday in Southern District Court of New York.

Dumitru was also sentenced to one year of supervised release, and ordered to forfeit US$157,500. She was convicted on Novem- ber 19, 2018, of asylum fraud, making false statements to immi- gration authorities and aggravated identity theft following a two- week trial. Between 2013 through 2017, Dumitru operated a scheme to sub- mit fraudulent forms in connection

with applications for asylum. The now disbarred attorney also forged the signatures of some of her clients. Manhattan U.S. Attorney Ge- offrey S. Berman said: “Using lies and forgery, Andreea Dumitru, an immigration attorney, cheated the nation’s asylum program. For her crimes, Dumitru will now spend five years in prison.”

US Attorneys General Urge Congress To Reform Marijuana Banking Rules LOS ANGELES: A ttorneys general
US Attorneys
General Urge
Congress To Reform
Marijuana Banking
Rules
LOS ANGELES:
A ttorneys general from 33 states have
urged Congress to approve a proposal
intended to fully open the doors of the U.S.
banking system to the legal marijuana in-
dustry.
Most Americans live in states where
marijuana is legally available in some form.
But most banks don’t want anything to
do with money from the cannabis industry
for fear it could expose them to legal trou-
ble from the federal government, which
still considers marijuana illegal.
“This is simple: not incorporating an
$8.3 billion industry into our banking sys-
tem is hurting our public safety and econ-
omy,” said California Attorney General
Xavier Becerra, whose state is the nation’s
largest legal pot shop.
The bill “would reward taxpayers and
small and local licensed businesses who
play by the rules,” he said in a statement.
The conflict between state and federal
law has left many growers and sellers in the
burgeoning pot industry in a legal dilemma,
shutting them out of everyday financial
services like opening a bank account or ob-
taining a credit card.
It also has forced many businesses to
operate only in cash — sometimes vast
amounts — making them ripe targets for
crime.
The pending bill would allow pot busi-
nesses to access loans, lines of credit and
other banking services while sheltering fi-
nancial institutions from prosecution for
handling pot-linked money.
In a letter to congressional leaders, the
attorneys general also argue that under ex-
isting law, authorities are less able to track
potential financial crimes and it is more dif-
ficult for businesses to pay — and for states
to collect — tax deposits.
The number of banks and credit
unions willing to handle pot money is
growing, but they still represent only a tiny

Reggae joins list of protected global cultural treasures

R eggae has been added to a list of interna- tional cultural treasures which the United

Nations has deemed worthy of protecting and promoting. The music, which grew out of Jamaica in the 1960s thanks to artistes like Toots and the Maytals, Peter Tosh and Bob Marley, was added to the collection due to its "intangible cultural heritage". UNESCO, the world body's cultural and scientific agency, says Reggae is cerebral, socio-political, sensual and spiritual, and has penetrated all corners of the world. In a statement, UNESCO noted that while reggae started out as the voice of the margin- alised, it was now played and embraced by a

wide cross-section of the society, including various ethnic and religious groups. Reggae followed on from the ska and rocksteady genres. Other early pioneers in- cluded Lee Scratch Perry and Prince Buster. Culture Minister Olivia 'Babsy' Grange reacted to UNESCO's decision, noting that the inscription "will invariably bring even more visibility to the representative list of the intan- gible cultural heritage of humanity and the in- tangible cultural heritage as a whole." Grange added that communities in St. Andrew are to benefit from UNESCO's in- scription as Waterhouse and Trench Town will be part of the body's heritage and creativity for sustainable cities, community-based invento-

ries project. Jamaica applied for reggae's inclu- sion on the list this year at a meeting of the UN agency in Mauritius, where 40 proposals were under consideration. Reggae was competing for inclusion alongside Bahamian strawcraft, South Korean wrestling, Irish hurling and perfume making in the southern French city of Grasse.

Aiding Aging Parents

4 tips to help overcome new challenges

(Family Features)

I t’s not easy getting old, as the saying goes,

and it can be even harder to watch your par-

ents age. Helping parents transition into the later years of their lives can be a delicate mat- ter, but there are ways to help them ease into an elderly stage and cope better with chal- lenges. For example, consider these tips and ways to aid aging parents:

Provide Entertainment Music can be a helpful gift – try loading a music player with a playlist of your parents’ favorite songs. Old movies can also spark con- versation. Host a luncheon for some of their best friends and make their favorite treats. They may be housebound, but there are still ways for them to interact.

Adjust to Physical Changes Reading materials could require larger-than- normal print, and a magnifying clip-on screen for a computer can be helpful as well. Serving foods that are easier to cut can make eating a simpler process. Keep an eye on weight and nutrition and try to find someone who will make a house call for haircuts.

Relive Memories Encourage older relatives to write (or dictate) their thoughts on financial tips, military serv- ice, business success, valued life lessons and, of course, the stories of how they met their spouses. Make a family tree together and try creating a photobook with old and new pic-

together and try creating a photobook with old and new pic- tures. Share news about family

tures. Share news about family members’ re- lationships and accomplishments, which might bring back personal memories.

Consider the Little Things Surprise your parents with a few new pieces of clothing for a thoughtful gift. Laminate a list of their medications and their doctors to keep with you in case of emergency and pro- vide a copy to your parents and any other care- givers. Create a contact list on your parents’ mobile phone to help them easily reach family and friends without needing to search. If there are young children in the family, try bringing them by for a visit – their energy and smiles may help brighten the room. Find more tips to assist aging relatives at gatherasyougo.com.

MOTHERS’ DAY FEATURE

Honoring

Motherhood

M other's Day is a holiday celebrated annually as a tribute to all mothers

and motherhood. It is celebrated on various dates in many parts of the world. Although the origins of the holiday date back to the times of the ancient Greeks and Romans, the modern form of the celebration of Mother's Day in the United States began in the early 20th century. It was first celebrated in 1908 in Grafton, West Virginia, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother Ann Reeves Jarvis who, in turn, many years ear- lier had founded Mothers' Day Work Clubs in five cities. Anna Jarvis began a cam- paign to make the Mother's Day a national holiday and she succeeded in 1914 when the U.S. President Woodrow Wilson pro- claimed the second Sunday in May a Mother's Day. Nowadays Mother's Day (or a similar event) is celebrated in more than 150 coun- tries around the world, although at different dates. Many countries, including the USA, Canada, Australia, Japan and many Euro- pean countries, celebrate Mother's Day on second Sunday of May. On the other hand, in many African countries it is celebrated on 21 March. Most of the Mother's Day dates around the world fall in May or in March.

Petition to lower cost of regional travel gathering steam

T he cost of intra-regional travel has become a pain for most CARICOM citizens and a

huge talking point considering the financial cri-

sis affecting LIAT airline. In an effort to put pressure on governments a petition was started in April by the Caribbean Citizens Against High Intra-Regional Travel Taxes, to force regional leaders to consider al- ternatives to the current taxes, fees and charges (TFCs) structure. Noting that numerous studies have high- lighted the link between high taxes and a result- ing lower demand for travel, the group is of the view governments are in position to lowers the TFC’s structure but are unwilling to do so.

hesitant be-

cause of the amount of revenue currently gen- erated by these TFCs. We believe that existing revenue does not have to be foregone, but rather collected via different taxes already in place when visitors visit and spend money in the dif- ferent economies.” During the Central Bank of Barbados eco- nomic review last week, it was revealed that re- gional arrivals numbers have dropped significantly. Trinidad and Tobago, which is usually Barbados largest Caribbean source mar- ket, registered a ten percent decline while other

“Clearly, governments are

CARICOM countries fell off by 4.6 percent. With over 10,000 signatures already se- cured the group has set a target for 20,000 sig- natures - after which the petition will be forwarded to the CARICOM Secretariat as well as the office of each country’s Prime Minister. “When the signatures collected reaches a point where we believe that CARICOM Gov- ernments are unable to ignore the issue any longer, we will be printing hard copies of the pe- tition including the names and origin countries of the thousands of Caribbean people who are demanding change. This will be accompanied by a compilation of the taxes and fees imposed by each government and a letter making the strong case for dialogue on the issue.” So far signatures have been pouring in from Caribbean territories as well the US, UK and Canada. Figures show Barbados has been leading the petition and the group noted this was most likely due to the fact that the country has one of the highest TFCs structures in the region. “Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica are sec- ond and third respectively, as they are among the biggest populations in the region. We as- sume they are showing an interest in reduced TFCs to facilitate greater movement north and south.

Seaga hospitalised in Florida

R eports have emerged that former Ja- maican Prime Minister, Edward

Seaga, has been admitted to hospital in Florida in the United States in serious con- dition. According to sources, Seaga was trav- elling when he fell ill, and was taken to hospital, where he was admitted. The former Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) leader turns 89 on May 28. He served as prime minister of Ja- maica between 1980 and 1989. Seaga famously won a landslide vic- tory over Michael Manley’s People’s Na- tional Party (PNP) in the hotly contested October 1980 General Elections on a ‘de- liverance’ agenda. The JLP comfortably remained in of- fice for nine years, as the PNP boycotted a snap election that was called in 1983. Seaga is the last surviving member of the framers of the Jamaican Constitution. He served as JLP leader for 31 years, and as Member of Parliament (MP) for West Kingston for 43 years, from 1962 until his retirement in 2005, the longest ever by a Jamaican politician. His retirement from active politics in 2005 marked the end of an era, as he was

the last of Jamaica’s serving politicians to have entered public life before independ- ence in 1962, as he was appointed to the Legislative Council (now the Senate) in

1959.

Seaga is credited with building much of the financial and planning infrastructure of the country after independence, as well as similarly influencing its art and craft spheres, along with awareness of the na- tional heritage.

Former FIFA boss Ssepp Blatter plans to
sue world football's governing body and
his successor for allegedly spreading "false
information" and damaging his reputation.
Blatter told a Swiss news maga-

against Gianni Infantino and FIFA". The
83-year-old former president was sus-
pended from FIFA in 2015 amid a gigantic
corruption scandal that rocked world foot-

But he claimed in Wednesday's inter-

contained false information. He alleged
that FIFA had spread "fake information

N.J sexual abuse victims get more time to sue

T he New Jersey Senate Judiciary Com- mittee hearing on legislation that

would expand the statute of limitations al- lowing victims of sex assault to sue insti- tutions. The hearing was at the NJ Statehouse in Trenton, N.J. March, 7. Gov. Phil Murphy will sign the broad- est law in the nation Monday that will vastly expand the amount of time victims of sexual assault will be allowed to bring a lawsuit against predators and the non- profit organizations that employed them. Murphy has hinted he generally sup- ports expanding New Jersey’s two-year statute of limitations for civil lawsuits, but had not said affirmatively he would sign the bill the state Legislature approved in March.

Sen. Joseph Vitale, D-Middlesex, the bill’s prime sponsor, said he received con- firmation Murphy was signing the bill on Monday, the last day he had to act before the law took effect automatically.

Jersey City official suspended for taking city car home

side Williams’ Broadman Parkway home early Thursday morning. The city has a pol- icy, that it has not shared publicly, barring some but not all employees from taking pub- lic cars home. This comes the same week that a fire- fighter, Christian Sir, was scolded by a judge for taking a city car home without permis- sion. Though the judge found Sir not guilty of the city ordinance he was accused of vio- lating, the city said it intends to take discipli- nary action against him. Williams, 63, lives in a neighborhood on Jersey City’s West Side near New Jersey City University. He earns $134,194 annually.

JERSEY CITY:

J ersey City’s recreation director was sus- pended for three days without pay after

The Jersey Journal caught him taking a city car home. Arthur Williams will lose about $1,500 because of the city car goof, according to city spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione. “As stated before, we have zero tolerance for this,” she said. Williams was last in the spotlight for ac- cepting paychecks from the school district during his unpaid leave of absence. The rec director’s suspension was handed down the same day The Jersey Jour- nal provided a photo of a city car parked out-

Williams is the second recreation direc- tor in a row to get slapped for use of a city car. One used by his predecessor, Kevin Williamson, was stolen from Williamson’s neighborhood in 2017. Williams is currently on his second year of a leave of absence from the Jersey City school district. When he took that leave in 2018 to join the city’s payroll, he continued to accept paychecks from the district. After The Jersey Journal uncovered that informa- tion, Williams agreed to pay the district back roughly $12,000 by cashing in some of his accumulated days and giving the district the money.

Managing your weight with healthy eating

T he foods and drinks you choose are important to maintaining a healthy

weight. Fruits and Vegetables. Many fruits and vegetables are low in calories and are also packed with fiber, vita- mins, and minerals, and water. Ade- quate intake of fruits and vegetables can help you control your weight. It may also reduce your risk of cancer and other diseases. The fiber and water in fruits and vegetables helps fill you up. Including more fruits and vegetables in your diet can lower the calories and fat in your diet without leaving you feeling hungry. Limit fruit juices to one 8-ounce (0.24 liter) cup or less per day. Whole fruits and vegetables are a better choice than juices because juices do not have

the fiber to help fill you up. Divide your dinner plate. Fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables. Fill the other half with whole grains and meat. Replace half of the cheese in your omelets with spinach, onions, toma- toes, or mushrooms. Replace 2 ounces (56 grams) of cheese and 2 ounces (56 grams) of meat in your sandwiches with lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, or onions. You can reduce your portion of rice or pasta by stirring in broccoli, chopped bell pepper, cooked squash or other vegetables.

Many stores now sell "riced" cauliflower and broccoli that can be used along with or in place of rice to increase your vegetable intake. Use

Long Island Town Cracks Down On Cigarette Butt Pollution

Installs Half-Dozen Receptacles For Recycling

PORT WASHINGTON:

A trillion cigarette butts are tossed out world-wide every year, but one Long Island community is doing some-

thing about the eyesore and pollution they leave behind. Not all smokers are going to give up the habit, but the habit of tossing what’s left over just anywhere is getting easier to kick in Port Washington, where cigarette butt re- ceptacles now line Main Street. They were installed by a civic group that’s not only fed up with the trashed look, but also the trail of butts that flows directly into storm drains and Long Island Sound wa- ters, CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported Friday. “One good

rain storm and it’s all going into the bay. It’s very upset- ting,” said Mindy Germian, the executive director of “Res- idents Forward.” Cigarette butts will now be collected and recycled. Once a week, special needs workers, paid by Main Street businesses, will empty the receptacles. “Anything can be something else when you’re done with it. Cigarettes even,” Germian said. Terracycle, a New Jersey-based company, will then separate the ash, tobacco and rolling paper and turn all of it into industrial fertilizer. The cigarette filters will help cre- ate plastic shipping palettes and outdoor furniture. What’s

more, 60,000 butts make a park bench and 165,000 a picnic table, Gusoff reported. “I think that’s an amazing idea. That’s an opportunity to make other things, instead of polluting our streets,” for- mer smoker Elena Merlos said. “It’s really sort of like the ultimate win-win. It’s the government partnering with the civic group is and business to take litter off our streets, promote recycling and hope- fully encourage people to quit smoking,” said Dina De- Giorgio of the Greater Port Washington Improvement District.

RELATIONSHIP

Mistakes single mothers make when looking for love!

By Tony Malesi T he average man is scared of single moth- ers because, among other things, they per-

ceive her kid(s) as baggage and fear the prospects of being sucked into baby drama. Such is the catch-22 situation most single mothers find themselves in. However, besides the unfortunate societal stigma that these women have to constantly fight, here are seven common big mistakes they make, which end up sabotaging what would have otherwise turned out to be great relationships. All men are dogs and all they want is sex: A good number of single mothers short- change themselves by adopting this terrible at- titude towards men. Just because you had this nasty experience with the father to your child (ren), doesn't mean all men are 'beasts'. Thing

is, and ladies please repeat this after me, there are many great men out there. Just don't ask me where to find them! Some are genuinely looking for love, regular companionship and honestly desire to form families. Actually, sex

is the last thing on their minds. Remaining single for so long: It is nor-

mal to take some time and stay away from dat- ing, following a break up to recover. However, some of these mums take way too long. Do not cry over spilt milk for decades. Once you be- come overly comfortable being a single mum,

it becomes an impediment for you to make the

switch and get into a new relationship because

you return when you are too 'rusty' to success- fully go through the motions, so to speak. Re- member the older you and your kid(s) get, the more difficult it becomes to get an appropriate partner in your age group or age set to settle down with. Immediately making your new boyfriend a parenting helper: Parenting is

a difficult task and I kid you no man wants

baptism by fire in as far as co-parenting is con- cerned. The orientation requires a lot of tact and diplomacy. Try and resist the temptation

to ask for school fees the very evening after

the first date. Even if you are broke as a church mouse and schools are opening a week after you just begin dating. Trying to baptize your new man into your life by fire is akin to him asking to sleep with you on the first date! Being a martyr for your children: It's common to see single mothers repeatedly use their child (ren) as excuses not to fully live their social life. Well, we know your kid(s) grabs virtually every second of your free time

and the situation is so tricky that even creating time for yourself and some for a potential suitor becomes almost impossible.
