Challenges of dating a single mother Lovecam xx
Better yet, become an ally and advocate by asking a single mom, how can I help?Marika Lindholm is the founder of ESME [Empowering Solo Moms Everywhere], the social platform for Solo Moms, by Solo Moms.
Find your tribe: Connect with single moms who share similar challenges. Ask for help: Even strong, independent women need help every now and then. Network: Build your support network of friends, acquaintances, and allies. Practice self-care: It doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time, but it’s a necessity. Seek professional support: Counseling is literally a lifesaver when mental health is at stake.Imagine you suddenly had sole responsibility for two children, earned around ,000 a year, found your friends drifting away, and continually felt judged for your parenting, no matter how well you handled it. As the founder of (Empowering Solo Moms Everywhere), I’m astounded by the resilience and fortitude of single moms, who currently are raising 23 million children in the United States alone.The route women take to single motherhood varies, but parenting alone is physically and emotionally demanding.Friends may choose sides, feel awkward or be unable to relate to a single mom’s new reality.Disconnection from community gives rise to feelings of alienation and hopelessness.
