Help for any parent--single or not (hint-- Military Moms) Oct 23, 2005
Ok, maybe you are a single mother or father for whatever reason; divorce, out-of-marriage children, widowhood or a temporary situation such as a spouse serving in the military. Here is a book that would make a WELCOME gift to anyone in this situation. Funny thing is, though, the advice in this volume would also apply to anybody raising a family.
There are lists of resources, certainly, for help if you are widowed or divorced, but there are also handy lists on how to run a household (for example, budgeting and de-cluttering. Lists of resources for health.)
There is a section on signs of trouble; is a child exhibiting signs of fear? They probably won't tell you "Mom, Dad, I'm afraid of the big bully in the schoolyard who steals my lunch money and has threatened to kill Fluffy Kitten if I tell!" In children, signs of fear are shown in actions or changes in behavior. Here's a chapter on what those signs are.
Any parent would benefit from this book, but I suggest you think about buying a few copies and passing them on to parents who have a spouse overseas. It would make a wonderful Thanksgiving present. Recommended for all new parents.
Brook Noel has helped me ! Oct 28, 2003
This book has helped me with so many good resources to use. Brook knowing first hand how hard it is to live in a single parent home has given us help to make it with what we have. Thanks Brook, you will never know how much my life has been changed thru reading your book.
The Single Parent Resource May 27, 2000
The Single Parent Resource is one of the most practical and comprehensive guides available today. With an easy to navigate table of contents, the book lends itself as a ready reference guide. As a single parent, I was impressed with the amount of information packed into it. It covers many of the issues that I have encountered and provides solutions that work. Single parenting is not easy but Brook Noel's book gives me more tools to deal with real life, day to day challenges. Thank you for giving me this help.
Helpful, supportive and practical resource guide Mar 17, 1998
The author, Brooke Noel, was raised in a single parent home so she understands from firsthand experience the type of trials and support needed by single parents.
The book covers the top concerns problems and challenges facing the single parent based upon a survey of 500 single parents:
Household management (cooking, cleaning, chores, etc.), balancing work and family, finances, childcare, emotional health for children and parents, and much more.
Although I'm not personally a single parent, I found the guide helpful for any busy parent. Many of the categories and tips are applicable to anyone.
I just wish this site.com didn't offer this book by special order only---it's definitely the type of resource single parents need to get into their hands right away.
