    i was primarily raised alone by my mother. my mother and father separated when i was about 3, late divorced when he was to remarried, i was about 9. i spend alot of time before that with my grandmother because my father was abusive and i would be dropped off at my grandmother's house.

    my mother and i lived with my sister's father a few years before she was born and he left the house when she was about 5 or 6.
    her father was and still is more of a father figure than my own father.

    i have no bitter feelings toward my father. in fact, i understand why he is the way he is. as i've stated on anther thread, he wasn't raised or shown how to be a father. i am closer to his offspring by his current wife than i am with him.

    Dang..

    I knew I was going to be the oddball.... Father died at 3yrs. Mother remarried at 5 yrs. Stayed with them until 15. Moved with grandparents. Left home for good at 17.... Basiclly raised myself after 7yrs of age... Strange but true....

    I was "raised" by my Mother and Grandmother although there was a Father in the home. He made it quite clear his function was to pay bills and handle discipline. "Take it to your Mother" was the phrase that met report cards, school trip permission slips, etc--I guess it wasn't easy being the only rooster in the henhouse.................

    Scorp.............

    I was raised by a very loving and carring mother who raised 5 girls. She gave of her life to protect ours.
