Parenting Without a Partner- Single Mother Support Group
Families come in all shapes and sizes, including single-parent households headed by a widowed, divorced, or separated parent with children under 18. According to the U.S. Census, about three in ten families with children are headed by single parents. Parenting alone can pose challenges, such as financial struggles, co-parenting concerns, and time management. At times you may feel alone and need extra support.
Do you ever think of giving up? It is hard at times! Most people may not understand what you are feeling or going through. You may feel hopeless at times which is a valid emotion when raising children alone. I can imagine the amount of shame and guilt that comes with that thought. Let’s collaborate to instill hope.
Do you say to yourself that the other parent should do more to help? I would imagine that you view this as unfair. I can see how you would view it that way; after all, they are the other parent and have the same obligation as you do. Let's work on doing your part well.
Did the other parent move on with a new family and left you all alone to parent? This is a tough situation to adjust to and deal with. You may even feel as if you and your child have been abandoned. Let’s process and heal those feelings.
Is the other parent refusing to pay child support or see the kids? This can be very hurtful and painful to deal with and I can guide you with resources to help you. Let's learn how to get the answers or change you need.
Everyone has a unique situation and whatever your situation. Join us for our next group.
