In this engaging journey of self-discovery, Patrice Karst, a single mother, shares her practical yet witty advice with single moms everywhere. She covers a wide range of topics that concern the modern woman struggling without a mate, showing how it's possible not only to survive but to triumph. The book features dozens of quick "survival checklists" on topics such as dealing with exhaustion and reasons to be happy about being a single mom. Karst's "Ten Commandments for Single Mothers" begins with "Thou shalt not be afraid to ask for help from anyone at any time (because the offers sure as hell won't come in by themselves)." The Single Mother's Survival Guide also includes wisdom and inspiration for the single mother, touching on goals and dreams, affirmations, and gratitude.

Packed full with helpful, handy, and useful information this book will help any single mom tackle the frustrating realities and challenges of single motherhood. You will also want to check out the completely revised third edition of The Complete Single Mother.
Reading this book lightened my heart and touched my soul. I learned and was reassured that other Mom's felt the way I did, which is what what I needed to keep going. Patrice writes the book with a smile, her sense of humor about life and how to deal with different situations was wonderful. The common sense suggestions were right on and I welcome any other books from Patrice. Being a single Mom is an incredibly important job, that is often not recognized and validated. Living as a single Mom with a baby (my daughter is 1.5 yrs old) in a 'couples' world is like running up a hill wearing high heels! Read this book, it will lift your spirit.
