    Hi @StarPotter24 - & welcome to this friendly community. Thank you for joining us all. It sounds like your son is fortunate to have such a lovely mum. Please do have a look around & join in with any discussions; there are links to these at the top of the page. How are you doing today? :)

    Thank you for allowing me to join I have dealt with most issues surrounding my son alone so this is definitely new to me and a little daunting to be honest. I internalise most things so I may find it difficult initially but I am hoping in these strange times that this will help relieve some of my stress and anxiety.

    That is just what this community is for @StarPotter24 - you can talk here about anything, knowing that some of our members will understand what you're going through. We also have light-hearted discussions & word games in our virtual 'Coffee lounge,' which offers some distraction, which we all need at times. Do chat here any time. :)

    Welcome @StarPotter24 It's good to meet you!

    I am always in awe of single parents.  They do an amazing job and often don't get the credit they deserve.  Your son is very lucky to have you  <3

    Our community is here whenever you need anyone to rant to or whenever things feel like they are too much.  I understand it can feel daunting at first but please don't be afraid to share anything that is troubling you, we get it and want to support you.

    Please give me a shout if you need any help getting around.  In the meantime, feel free to have a nosey in our coffee lounge and at our recent discussions to see if anything takes your fancy :)
