How to be strong
Dove - posted on 06/26/2015
Because raising kids is designed to be a two person job... that's why it takes two people to CREATE that life... two people are supposed to parent that life. No one person can completely fill both roles no matter how awesome of a single parent they may be.
Now... that's not to say it isn't doable... I've been a single mom of 3 ever since my youngest was born 7 years ago... but I KNOW I can not do it completely alone and I wouldn't even try... my girls (teenagers) are VERY involved in our church youth group and have a very close relationship w/ their two best friends and their families (intact families, so they have very involved 'uncles' in their lives). My son spends almost every Saturday w/ my dad, so he gets the love and attention that he needs from a man as well.
If you do not have family/friends willing or able to help out there are programs available in some areas to help give kids what they are missing by being raised by only one parent. Hang in there!! You can do this! ♥

Being a mom is probably the hardest job on the planet. Being a single mom makes the hardest job on the planet seem impossible at times. You have to stay strong and get as much help from your friends and family as possible. One common mistake that new moms make is to try to do it all alone. I'm speaking from experience, getting help is the best thing you can do for you and your little one.
