• You can’t compromise on any aspect of child’s development that is why parenthood involves a special care system and a total commitment in bringing up a child.

In today’s scenario, we all are aware that the cost of living is sky high. These days both the parents have to work to provide a decent education facility for their kids.

You will find it hard to trust people; it’s obvious that you will take some time to actually like someone. But don’t put unreasonable expectations while dating someone. In a subconscious state of mind you will start comparing the behavior of your date with your ex. There is nothing wrong to scrutinize someone to know the person better, but try to avoid the comparison part because every individual is different and no one is perfect. If you couldn’t get along with your ex that doesn’t mean that you will loose any hope of falling in love again.
Every divorce has to go through the emotional trauma; certainly it takes time to heal from the heartbreaking feel of a breakup. In many cases you end up getting depressed and feel dejected or loose interest in relations.
In case before getting a divorce your kid’s demands were always fulfilled, but now due to lack of sufficient funds you are not able to give the best entertainment source to your child. The most important thing which you can offer to your child is the quality time, you can take her out to a park and you can easily buy story books, video games, vcds or some toys. You don’t have to always buy an expensive stuff to please your kid.
Don’t be afraid to socialize with the outside society, if you think people will judge you based on your personal life then most probably you will never be able to face the world.
I personally know many single parents who are very encouraging in their own way, when you listen to other peoples story it gives you a strength to be stronger. Never forget to help needy people; this will give you a sense of confidence to provide an emotional support to others by encouraging them to fight against all the odds. What can be the most promising thing, if you can actually set an example of yourself by proving that single parenting is not something which you should feel depressed about.
It’s advisable to try dating, to divert your mind from the daily tensions. Your apprehensions towards your kid are justifiable, but always see the brighter side of the picture. Take out some time for yourself to relax your mind; you can meditate every morning to generate a positive outlook towards life. Gradually your problems will fade away, just don’t give up, you deserve a new start!
We all know that children get affected the most by divorce. It gets very complicated for a single parent to talk about their ex, just because of the reason that you couldn’t get along with them you can’t expect the kids to hate their father or mother. Every child needs affection from both the parents, in many cases even after divorce the parents love towards the child never dies and vice versa.
When you are a working woman, then naturally it will get difficult for you to manage your time with your kids and at your work place. There comes a need to organize your time in a most effective way. Try to maintain a diary to plan out everything to avoid any kind of chaos in your life.
