To empower women with confidence to parent as a single parent

It is often the case that your feelings and emotional wellbeing ends up at the bottom of your list of priorities. We often hear from parents who feel guilty if they do allow themselves some time out. This is natural, however, time out is a necessary part of surviving and coping with parenting alone. It may just be a nice relaxing bath once the children have gone to bed or perhaps the odd evening out with friends. Whatever your time out is, it is essential for a happier family life.

At times, it can be hard managing the practical things in life, such as balancing work and home, different school runs, cooking and chores, etc. Trying to split yourself in two is a common thought and possibly a wish amongst many parents in this situation. You can only do what you can do and pushing yourself too hard can result in an emotional burnout. You're not alone and this is a passing stage of life, so find ways to enjoy it before its gone!

Many of the resources below are aimed at helping you out of the more challenging single-parent situations, so don't forget to also find time to look at some of the other pages, such as Finding Happiness, as that's also important!
