Being a single parent will likely be the hardest thing you will ever do in your life, but it will also be very rewarding. By following a few simple tips you will find that the road of being a single parent can be a bit easier.
Tip #1: Quality Over Quantity
If you're a single parent you are likely also the soul provider for your family. This can make the amount of time you have to spend with your children less. You need to remember that your children will remember the fun things you did over the amount of time you spent doing them. Take an hour ever day to spend one-on-one time with your children. Make sure that this time is uninterrupted so they know that at least for that hour they have your complete attention.
Tip #2: Become an Organized Person
You need to get organized not only with your belongings but also with your time. By having a schedule to stick to you will see that not only does your day run much smoother but things will be less hectic. This will help you to be less stressed out and be able to focus more attention to your children and spend less time trying to figure out what comes next or where something is.
Tip #3: Find Time Alone Just For You
Although you are a parent you are still an individual. You still need to find time to spend doing the things you enjoy. Even if you can't leave the house you can enjoy a good book, take a warm bath, watch a movie or do something that pleases you. This will help you to feel less stressed out.
