Most people agree that having a mom and a dad who love and support each other and their children is the best scenario for a family. However, single parenting does not mean unsuccessful parenting; myriads of children raised by a single parent are living rich, full, and successful lives.
If you find yourself alone caring for your children, remember there are some advantages to this situation: You get to make all the decisions yourself. When you and your ex are co-parenting, disagreements will inevitably arise regarding how the children should be raised. When parents are fighting, both home environments can become unhealthy for everyone.
You can keep your children on regular daily routines and schedules without worrying about what is happening in the other parent’s home when the kids are there.
All of the children’s friends, belongings, and school assignments are in one place. You can be a role model for your children. Life can be difficult for you with all of the time and resource juggling, but the way you handle it can be a superb example of strength and independence.
Don’t view single parenting as a dilemma, but as an opportunity.
