It’s easy, as a single parent, to get caught up in the day-to-day activities of working and taking care of the kids and their needs. You can easily feel overwhelmed and alone if you don’t take measures in meeting your own needs such as maintaining a network of supportive friends. Many of us single parents have lost friends when our relationships ended, and the married friends that we do keep, just don’t fully understand the challenges of the single parent lifestyle.
This is when having a group of single parents can really helps us deal with the challenges we face every day. If there isn’t a local group of single parents in your area, why not start one yourself? The following link will take you to a website that will walk you through how to set up your own support group.
Take heart, there are others out there going through similar life situations that you are. Fin your tribe and support each other.
