Editorial Reviews

American Baby Magazine
Written by the founder and director of the National Organization of Single Mothers, this comprehensive guide explains what nearly ten million American single mothers need to know to overcome the challenges of daily life with dignity, wisdom, and courage. "Provides a world of support for women who often feel alone."
Library Journal
With more than nine million American women raising children alone by choice or out of necessity, it is surprising that most books on pregnancy and parenting still assume that the two-parent family is the norm. These two manuals written by single mothers offer useful, practical advice for women raising children alone. They include information on medical care, financial management, legal matters, career planning, social life, support networks, and dealing with family members. The Tippinses' book deals only with pregnancy and the baby's first year. It is organized chronologically by pregnancy trimester so that women can be prepared for the child's arrival. It includes sample agreements for women using sperm donors and co-parenting agreements, as well as a bibliography and resource list. The budget-planning advice is excellent. Engber and Klungness, writing in the tone of self-help books, cover the same topics, but they place more emphasis on the mother's self-esteem and other psychosocial issues. They also include child-development and parenting information about older children as well as a bibliography and resource list. Both books are more comprehensive than Jane Mattes's Single Mother by Choice (Times Bks., 1994) and Caryl Walker Kruger's Single with Children (Abingdon, 1993). They are highly recommended for all parenting collections.Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L., Cal.

    The Complete Single Mother

    I found The Complete Single Mother to be an important work that enables a clear understanding of the single mother's experience and how being a single mother colors her relationships with others. The latter point is important to me because, as a single man who could consider making a commitment to a single mother, I am interested in knowing about how a single mother effectively manages her relationships with her child or children and her boyfriend, as well as her own needs within those relationships. Such an understanding, which Dr. Klungness presents lucidly and thoroughly, lays the groundwork for a meaningful relationship based on empathy and trust. I also found the information on Dr. Klungness' website similarly helpful. Five stars for sure.

    The best help you could ever ask for.....

    I bought this when I was 6 months pregnant (and abandoned) and 6 years later, it is still read often! It has every question answered for every situation you may be in and it deals with events that could happen from conception to when your child becomes an adult. I even bought a copy for my mother when she went through her second divorce! This is a great book to help all of us single mom's out there grow brave, stand strong and unite!!!!!

    Flying Solo

    No one ever wants to 'fly solo' in parenting. But, if we must, why not be totally prepared? Get this book and keep it for future problems and successes. It's all here - just read it and stay tuned.
