Opinion & Debate

Published on September 15th, 2014 | by Parenting Solo


Five (ridiculous) things people always ask/tell single parents…

  1. So why did you break up with your partner?
  2. How do you COPE on your own?
  3. Don’t you worry about them not having a male/female (insert as appropriate) role model?
  4. You must be desperate for another relationship!
  5. It can really affect a child’s behaviour, can’t it, being raised by a single parent…

Any more to add?
