Struggles Faced by Single Parents

One of the most difficult things a single parent can struggle with is having to do everything by themselves with no one else to blame if it does not get done. They quickly learn that if something has to be done, they are the one that has to do it. Even if you have developed a network of friends with which each helps each other, you may find there are some jobs to be done that no one is capable of or has time to do. Example, earlier this year, I learned how to repair a crack in my basement wall that leaked every time it rained and caused a mess. When no one was available or willing to fix it, I sought advice from others on what needed to be done, went to the local hardware store, talked with them and bought the necessary supplies and fixed it myself. Accepting and learning from challenges is part of a growing and developing process that we never outgrow. The day we stop learning is the day we begin to die.
