While this is not a "mommy" blog we do like to take the time to recognize all the moms for all that they do. This is a guest post from a helpful site for single moms that we feel everyone should read.
Single moms are faced with all the usual responsibilities and worries of being a woman and/or a parent, an adult etc. But they have the additional worry of being the only person to care for their child. A single mom has to pay the bills, put food on the table, make sure that their child has safe and reliable child care, and a home to live in. Transportation, education, medical appointments, work, homework, play dates and attempting to raise a happy and well behaved child are all constant issues for a single mom.
It can be quite overwhelming and frustrating to attempt to make ends meet, make time for everything and keep a bit of sanity along the way. There are probably many single moms who enjoy this website because it celebrates all aspects of being a woman. Yes, single moms are women too. They need time to de-stress, to wonder about their own health and to learn how to take care of themselves so that they will be healthy and happy while raising their children.
Financial Help for Single Moms is a site which answers a lot of the other questions single moms may have. Whether you are looking for advice or tips on interviews, the possibilities to help you fund your college education or even what sort of financial assistance is available in your state we have answers for you. Be proud to be a woman, be even prouder to be tackling the struggle of being a single parent. You are amazing in all that you do, you are being both mother and father and taking on more responsibility than you think you can handle and you are doing it all with love.
