I never imagined that I would become a single mother on my fifteenth birthday, but then again, I wouldn’t have imagined that I’d be a single mom with two children today either.
Raising children is not all about fun and play. You MUST teach them manners, discipline and respect for themselves and other people as well.
I recommend starting these lessons when your child is a toddler.
It requires more patience to raise children than almost anything else you will ever encounter in your life, but there is no reason that it should be done alone!
Yes, it is challenging and at times can cause you to wonder how you are going to manage, but stress and parenting do not have to be joined at the hip.
New parents face many challenges that they are expected to understand and deal with immediately. Unfortunately, newborns are not like Ikea furniture, they do not come with an instruction manual.
Anyone can be a single parent. Single parenting is sometimes caused by; divorce, by the death of ones partner, by choice by way of adoption, by unplanned or teen pregnancy.
To become a parent in general is a decision that a couple has made to bring another human being into this world.
Whatever your journey to parenthood you’ve come to the right place.
