Overview

Recent statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau show there are over 9 million single mothers in the United States. For every mother recently finding herself single or new moms learning how to raise their first child by themselves, there are countless things any mother will need to know. Single motherhood presents innumerable situations that are much harder to handle without the helping hands of a second parent nearby.

This book is for every mother who is learning how to raise children on her own. Regardless of how you came to be a single mom — whether it was through divorce, the end of a relationship, surrogacy, adoption, unplanned pregnancy, or the death of a spouse — this book will walk you through the information you need to know to help you and your child adjust to a new lifestyle. The book covers what to do when pregnant and single and how to rely on your family and friends for support and help.

You will learn the basics of early Child care, including what a child needs in his or her first year, from breastfeeding and diapers, to clothing and travel. You will learn what to expect as your child grows, including the early years of school and the problematic teenage years.

This book teaches you how to take care of yourself in addition to your children, which includes getting the rest you need and working you way back into dating. You will learn how to prepare yourself for the sacrifices you will be forced to make and how to handle financial matters while raising a child alone. Even the difficult topics are covered, such as the first times you must discuss with your child why his or her father is not present.

You will learn when you can fill in as a father figure, when you cannot, and what you can do to provide the male influence and support children need during those formative years. If your child’s father is involved, this book will teach you how to work with him. You will learn how to raise a boy as a single mother and find positive role models for your children.
