Parenting - The Free Nurturing by Mom

Single Parenting Tips and Advice

The paper deals with single parenting, that is only by Moms, without the aid of the other biological parent, the dads. Single rearing is indeed a challenging and awesome task, since the Mom now has to assume roles of both parents, which is indeed a difficult, albeit achievable proposition by any standards.

Although it may sound incredulous, it is truly believed that some children raised by single parents do much better in their futures, especially when compared with children raised by both parents. The best examples of single-parent reared children are our own President of the US, Barack Obama, actors Tom Cruise, Julie Roberts, Leonardo DiCaprio, Alicia Keys and many others.

Set goals that are SMART - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely and truly guide them to achieve them.

» Learn to say “NO” when something is not possible

Children do tend to be over demanding and it then becomes necessary to having to deny things that are unnecessary and superfluous. There is indeed no harm in saying no rather than being overindulgent. As a matter of fact it shows Mom loves them enough not to spoil them for their own good. Overindulgence is as harmful for children as is too much parsimony.

» Live within your means

It is necessary that Moms run the family within their means and not take up promises which they can never fulfil. Use of credit beyond means and living ostentatious lives well beyond one’s means could be a surefire recipe for crisis later. Living within one’s means ensures that all needs are taken care of, without overindulgence.

» Single parenting not an issue if you enjoy every minute of it

Making single parenting enjoyable could indeed release most of the stress and worry associated with it. It could have been worse and we need to enjoy every moment of it. Besides, all these efforts would have payback time, sooner or later, and that is what Moms need to look forward to.

» Reward the good performance of your children

For single parenting to be truly successful, it is important to reward performance lest there is no motivation for it and the kids lose motivation and interest to do well, through greater and sustained efforts. A word of praise, a chocolate there or a cake here, all boosts ego and love and stretches the good relationships even further, and is very necessary to avoid ennui and despair.

Conclusion

Single parenting could indeed be an enjoyable and exhilarating experience if Moms set their minds to it. We need to count on our many blessings, thank God for it and readily take up all the challenges and issues with a happy and contented disposition. Our attitudes in life truly determine our level of success and altitudes, and it needs to be positive to gain maximum benefits. It is to be borne in mind that children, after all, are only children, and for our own goods, it is better not to be too judgmental, or harsh on them.
