Single Motherhood is probably the most challenging experience one can
live through. With constant, overwhelming, responsibility you might
wonder if you really will...live through it that is. Just kidding, but
anybody who's ever been a single parent will tell you "sometimes, it
ain't easy!" Through the difficulties I've encountered as a single mom I
have found an inner strength, a resourcefulness I never knew existed. It
feels good! I am in charge of my life and I like who I see when I look
in the mirror. As a single mother for the past 6 years, I have put
together what I call my "Single Parent Success Tips" and I am pleased to
share them with you now.
1). Ask for help when you need it! Family and friends want to help and
they maybe unaware you need assistance. Whether it's borrowing money to
pay the light bill or you're having difficulty shuffling the kids around
to and from soccer practice, just let people know what you need. Your
family and friends all want to see you succeed and they will help!
2). Form a support network of friends and family. Include other single
mothers in your network. Bounce ideas off of one another. Get
reassurance of your own parenting skills by talking with others. Swap
out baby-sitting with other single parents for time to yourself.
3). Going to the store? Form a shopping network of two or three other
moms (single or otherwise) in your neighborhood. When a mom makes a trip
to the grocery story, have her call the other moms in the group to see
who needs what. Take turns and everybody gets a little help.
