Real Housewives of New York City's Kelly Bensimon is a single mother, so we think she's a pretty good source on how it is to raise a parent all by yourself.
And according to her - it ain't easy!
"I am a single parent and it’s not easy. For anyone who is a single parent, it is nothing to be flippant about. It is really, really difficult. I have to work as well, and it’s something that I’ve always done. I’ve always worked and I’ve always been a single parent. This is my life and it’s how I am trying to raise my kids. I want them to have really great values. I don’t want to be that parent that’s like, “I work so much that I kind of spoil them.” I am trying to give my kids those Midwestern values that I find very important."
We're glad this lady knows not spoil her kids!
It may seem tough now, but we have a feeling that's gonna work out for you in the long run!
Your kids will definitely thank you someday!
