 It's nice to meet you, Mara! I've got one girl close to yours at 12 and another girl who's 13. How long have you been single?

Oh thank you! Seems like you hit all the right spots & connected all the right dots! I'm sure this article will be of great help to me! ;)


Quoting WatchmansMoon:

Welcome Mara (and RadiantlyYou too!) I hope you find some encouragement and help here. I know of a helpful article for Single parents, called Taking Care of Yourself. Some of the suggestions are 1) Make a connection - with others to support you, like you're doing here, 2) Look out for your needs - you can't just care for your kids, you need to care for yourself, 3) Learn to say no - you're not superwoman, so don't think you can be everything to everyone who asks, 4) Ge on a budget - it will give you peace that you may desperately need at this time, 5) Establish family time - you may be with them all the time, but quality fun and relaxation time. If you don't schedule it in, it may never happen, 6) Forgive your kid's dad - may be the hardest thing, but unforgiveness will hurt you and your kids much more than it will him. If you want to read the full article, it's at http://bit.ly/17e8F94   Hugs and blessings to you!
