Single- & Parttime Parents
Single- & Parttime Parents does not exist any more. This is only a greeting to all those who were members many years ago. 5000 members from 52 different countries. We all meant a lot to each other, and you all also meant a lot to me.
I could mention very many names, because very many of you are tattooed into my mind and will never be forgotten. As you all know, I became ill, had a cardiac arrest and the last surgery was a 5 times bypass. I still have all the e-mails I received through the hospital and I still take them out to read them every now and then. Thank you all!
I can see in my log that this site still get a hit sometimes from people searching about what was. So I wrote this page so that there will be something to find. Sometimes I miss the SPP site, but it became so busy that I did not have the time, nor strength, to keep it up.
As you can see, I am still alive, and I use my life for my son, who now has turned 15. Beside that I have been using my time only on the sport I like so much - shooting. I still live alone with my son, and must have done so for about 13 years now.
Most of you know about my other struggle. That struggle ended too, at about the same time as SPP ended. I have been in contact with her, but that is about all. I have seen her and I have visited her. Time and parental alienation has done its work. You know what I am saying.
We all shared a lot back then. We all had a sad story to tell and to share. We all were singles and we all were parents. We all were having a rough time and we all shared and helped each other. You all also helped me a lot. And for this I will be for ever thankful.
If any of the old members wish to share what has happened to them the last 7 years, I will like to hear about it. I might even make a page her, where we can post the greetings. But I assume there will not be many of the old members visiting after such a long time. But anyway, this is a greeting to all of you. I am ok and I am enjoying life, still a single father, which I assume never will change, and not fully recovered since 1999. That was the year everything changed. That was the year Single- & Parttime Parents stopped to exist as well.
Greetings to all of you!! I really hope that you have solved your problems, are having a nice life and that things have gone to the better for all of you.
You friend for ever

Thinking about divorce? Maybe we can help you reconsider, or get you through it more gentle!
This site on the web is dedicated to children?s rights. This involves also the right to have two parents; a mother and a father. It is the most important thing for our children, to have two parents who can set aside their own need for fighting each other, and instead help the child to feel free to love their close ones. One way to do this, is to communicate, show respect, and learn to know each other as unique human beeings, and not to look upon each other with focus on why the adult relationship did not work out. Let us all share our knowledge and experiences on how to make a good life for our kids.
.... We give the child the right to have two parents.
.... Quality demands quantity (a few weekends are not enough)
.... it is easy to choose between Coca- & Pepsi Cola, but choosing where NOT to live...
.... Those who have best contact with both parents, are those who manage best.
.... While one wait and long, the kids grow up (and away) Do something now.
"Ego-parenting" is a term I made up; it covers a parent who ignore the childrens need, either by not taking responsibility or by not allowing the other parent to show responsibility. That is a parent who only can see the need to parent him- or herself.
.... Ego-parenting - Makes loosers.
.... Ego-parenting - Prevents co-operation.
.... Ego-parenting - Declares the other parent.
.... Ego-parenting - Robs a parent from the children.
.... Sharing - Makes everybody a winner.
.... Sharing - Encourages co-operation.
.... Sharing - Promotes equality between parents.
.... Sharing - Gives the children caring and support from both parents.

The old group actually exsist out there in cyberspace. I found it today and had to remove a lot of sex anouncements and other junk. I have not been there since 1999 in fact.
