I'm a Single Parent... Help!

Being a single parent is very difficult work. It is very overwhelming for the single parent to run a house and children on their own. Luckily, there is help! There are many organizations out there which have the advice and much needed support for the single parent, both single mothers, and especially single fathers. Many organizations are faith based, out of a church or temple, however, there are others which where created by single parents to help other single parents.

Many of the organization’s websites have great resources for the single parent such as: articles, information, advice, government resources, and support boards, as well as stories from single parents. Though some of these organizations are based in different states, the website alone is able to help a single parent and give them the support and advice they need. These websites are not solely focused on the single mother, or single father, but also the children of the single parents.

Some websites to help single parents are listed below. These are great resources for anyone looking for information about single parenting, or looking for support and advice. Please feel free to peruse these websites for their great information.

  1. I can relate to this topic because i group up in a single parent household. While my father was very involved in m life we still struggled because we only had one income. My mom also ended up having my brother when i was 7 and during her prgnancy she got diabetes and other health problems and couldnt work. So she had to depend on Welfare which was barely ever enough. I know what it was like growing up in shelter I've also done that. It is very difficult to raise children and i can only imagine how difficult it is now with the cost of living going up.
