Other people don’t truly understand how tough it is to be a single parent. Sometimes you want to give up. And that’s a normal reaction—you’re doing the job of two people. You should be tired. The thing is, you deeply desire to do what’s best for your kids, but you worry that you can’t. Sometimes it’s all you can do to survive from one day to the next. So, what can you do? Single & Parenting groups address these concerns.
Each Single & Parenting session includes a video seminar featuring life-changing teaching from counselors and professionals who have been, or who work with, single parents; stories from single parents who’ve faced parenting dilemmas; and demonstrations of how to handle tough situations with your kids. Then, your group will discuss the lesson and explore how to apply it.
Between sessions, you will apply the strategies to your daily life. Short, daily workbook exercises help you adjust the tips to fit you. Whatever your struggles—kids, discipline, exhaustion, money, ex-partner, depression, anger—the workbook helps you address the situation.
What can you expect?
- Your nervous feelings won’t last long. Those feelings tend to go away quickly for most people. The people in the group want to become better single parents. They are looking for solutions and help, too.
- These people get it. Your fellow group members will understand what you’re experiencing and where you’re coming from.
- Practical and proven strategies that you can apply to your own specific situations.
- It’s not required, but you get the chance to talk about your experiences. In doing so, you’ll likely discover you’re not the only one facing these types of situations.
Single & Parenting group leaders are people who understand how you feel and have real care for single-parent families. Many Single & Parenting leaders have been single parents themselves.
