I ended up a single parent (mom) and it was not planned. The schools we had did not have such events, but the church and some other groups did. It was no problem and I thought nothing of it. My dad, brothers, uncles, cousins or friends were more than willing to escort my daughter. Life happens and you have to deal with it. Unfortunately society today can not & will not deal with anything, they expect everyone else to "deal" with it for them.
