What are the challenges faced by Single Parents?
Jul 29, 2011
For every child having both parents is usually better than being raised by one. But if the child has to go through frequent arguments and fights then a single parent household is better.
Some Challenges of Single Parenting
- Finance is usually a major concern especially for single mothers. Talk to your spouse before filing a divorce regarding important issues such as who will pay for the child’s education and other expenses. Take help from your parents or support group if needed.
- After a bad divorce you will have to develop amicable relations with the other parent, for your child’s sake.
- You may feel lonely at times and may miss the comfort of having a partner to share your problems with. As a result, you will have a difficult time dealing with the kid single-handedly.
Whatever the problems be, you must teach your child/children to value and enjoy life and learn from the experience.
