Inspiring Book for Single Moms (Or Single Dads) Mar 25, 2007
I wish I'd had this book twelve years ago, when I became a single mother after an unexpected divorce. I needed this! I didn't think I needed it now, but I picked it up anyway. It's helping me a lot with my teen sons. The advice about parenting in this book is first rate: the advice about how to parent your teens is worth buying the book for! This is an excellent book for single moms, but it includes plenty of info for single fathers also. Clear, readable, real-life, and full of help!
Barbara Sheldon, M.S.W. Coordinator of Divorce Care also recommended: "Moving Forward After Divorce" by same authors
Learning From Single Parents Mar 21, 2007
We spent three years interviewing single parents for this new book. We asked them "what's working?" and "what have you learned?" We laughed, we cried, we learned from the 'experts' --- the moms and dads out there who are doing their best to raise confident, successful kids. It was amazing!
We've been learning from divorced adults for more than two decades, but writing this book taught us a lot more. From all over North America, from parts of western Europe, and even from Asia --- we sat down with single parents to find out how they cope with stress and keep on going.
The "five stars" above are for the single moms and dads we met. Every one of them is an inspiration to us! If you are single and raising your kids alone, you'll find useful help here --- real-life stories of the moms and dads who are out there learning from experience --- and sharing those experiences with all of us.
This is a book about success and failure, having good days and bad days, being alienated from your teens, yet somehow moving forward and raising kids that are strong, successful, and well-adjusted. YOU CAN DO IT.
