Growing up with a single mother is an experience that I will never downsize or forget as it has taught me a lot of things in life. I got to see the differences that having two parents compared to one up close as I had a half sister that had both our mom and her dad in her life. As we grew a noticed a lot of differences between us like how much we get spent on per year and how we were raised. Although we were both raised by our mother mostly she had time with her father which gave her experiences that I would never had. In the time that I spent alone growing up ( which was a lot of the time) I have learned that I can learn a lot in life from quietly observing other people.From observing everyone around me growing up I have learned a lot about the truth in life and this has made me aware of the many differences between growing up with a single mother and having both parents.
