Tips on Being a Single Parent. P.S You’re Not Alone!

Wether you’re a single mom or dad, all the respect in the world goes to you! Being a single parent is inherently challenging, but it can also be incredibly rewarding and powerful. Being independant can cause financial strain. You may have problems finding childcare. The life of a single parent can be very busy, in addition to taking care of your children and your home, you may also be working and/or going to school. It’s important to find a way to balance all of the parts of your life so that you don’t feel overwhelmed.

Accept help. If friends and family offer their help, take it! This can mean having someone play with your child while you run errands, at work or even having someone to call when you need to talk.

Take advantage of local resources. Many communities offer playgroups, after-school activities, and parenting classes. These can give you and your child a chance to have fun learn, and make new friends (gives you a little well deserved free time of your own too). You’ll be surprised how much this can help you out!

Take some time. Find creative ways to spend more time with your children in your busy days and weeks. See if your job will let you work flexible hours. Make sure to organize yourself so you have time for your kids and most important for yourself.

Have fun. Take a break from your busy routine to plan something special for you and your child. For example, take a surprise trip to the zoo, or go out for ice cream together. Check local event calendars for free or inexpensive activities you can do together.

Make time for yourself. If it’s happy hour with your friend, reading a book, taking a long bath… Whatever it is to make time for yourself, do it !

Self care is important to keep yourself physically and mentally healthy. 

Stay active. Find ways for you and your children to include exercise into your daily routine. It’s also a great way for you to spend quality time with your children.

Being a single parent can be hard at times but never forget that you’re just a phone call away from someone that cares about you and your kids and that is willing to help out of love.
