Single Parents

The Essential Guide

Bringing up children is hard enough when you have a partner, but when you are on your own things can be twice as difficult! Being a single parent can feel like you have no one to turn to for support and help and you can feel totally isolated. Written by a single parent, this book provides you with all the advice and support you need to get your life back on track. Its easy-to-read style guides you through a series of steps to help you cope with being a single parent: from breaking the news to your children and managing the home to controlling the family finances and dealing with new relationships. Practical strategies will also offer solutions that will make your life easier, happier and less stressful, proving that it is possible to achieve a balance between household chores and relaxation.
