Nationally syndicated radio show host and comedian Rickey Smiley speaks candidly about the struggles of single parenthood and raising five children, two of whom are daughters, in an interview with The Christian Post.
The 47-year-old star of TV One’s reality show, “Rickey Smiley For Real,” opens up about the challenges he’s faced and is not ashamed to talk about the hardships that come with being a parent
One of the tough things about being a single father is trying to teach a woman how to be a woman. I have to teach my daughters how to sit at a table, how to cross their ankles. … I’m trying to teach them etiquette and how to be a lady,” Smiley told CP.
Navigating the world of parenthood isn’t easy for Smiley, who advises single fathers to remain consistent and resilient.
