Stresses of the Single Mother

Stresses of the Single Mother

The single mother is no longer the exception. It’s almost the rule. There are many women who either have chosen not to be married or have gone through divorces who have children. In these instances, there are unique stresses to being both the mother and father to a child. A single mother has to play both roles. She has to be a disciplinarian, supporter and/or providing love and care at times that are needed. This can be stressful for the single mom, which is why she needs to also have time for herself and not feel guilty about it when she does.
