Single Parents' Top Concerns in 2008

By January 1, 2008

Follow me on:

You know, there are a lot of people out there who think they know what it's like to be a single parent. You'll hear them lament that they're "a single parent" for the week while their spouse is on a business trip; or they bear the primary burden of disciplining the kids on their own, and they liken it to raising their kids "solo."

What would you say to these people? How would you explain what it's really like to never have the benefit of someone else to back you up, to be independently responsible for paying every bill and providing for every meal?

Let us know what your experience is like by participating in this week's poll, leaving a comment, or submiting your own personal story to About Single Parents.

Why? Because there's power in your stories. The power to encourage, the power to change, the power to overcome. Let's start the year by sharing them.

Poll: What is your biggest concern for the coming year?
