The Single Parent
Doesn't Have To Feel Alone

Authored by William G. DeFoore, Ph.D.

Being a single parent is one of the most challenging things we can do. But you don't have to feel alone, because there are a lot of other good folks like you who understand and might even have some tips for you.

This is a place where you can tell your story, read the stories of other parents going solo, and offer and receive help with your parenting.

You are smarter and stronger than you think, and you have something to offereven if you feel like you don't.

So, read on, and tell your own story, if that feels right for you. This is your chance to help and be helped. 

Tell Your Single Parent Story

It's easy, so no need to worry here. Just follow these simple instructions, and you'll be up and running. Just fill in the form below, and be sure to include:

  • Your situation, in as much detail as possible. Describe what's happening, what your challenges are, and who else is involved. The more detail, the better.
  • Any background information that will help to explain what's going on. Your personal history, any previous relationships that perhaps contribute to the present challenges.
  • Anything you've tried that has worked or not worked. Even if it's something like yelling, screaming, praying, or calling a friend. Describe all of your efforts to deal with your difficulties.
  • What exactly you would like help with. Try to ask specifically for the type of input or support you're looking for, to get the best response from me (Dr. DeFoore) or other visitors.

That's it! If selected, your parenting story will be published on this site, along with Dr. DeFoore's suggestions, if needed.

Writing out your story has tremendous benefit, no matter what. It's good brain activity when you're under stress, and actually helps you to manage your emotions more successfully, which is very helpful when you're on your own as a parent.

If you don't feel like writing your story, then just read the others you find here, and you'll realize that you are among friends here.

Parenting alone is hard, but you can do it and you can do it well. And you can provide a good life for yourself along the way. Join in and tell your story by completing the form below.

If there's one thing you need while raising kids on your own, it's confidence in yourself. And that will only come if you do a good job of taking care of yourself emotionally.

Have A Question Or Story?

Here's your chance to ask Dr. DeFoore about your situation. It can be about anything having to do with parenting. Tell your story with as much detail as possible, and if your submission is selected, he will give you some free counseling.

Then the results will be a web page on this site that will help others! So, there you go--help and be helped! By the way, you can be anonymous if you choose, but if you include your first name, it's better.
