Times have changed, and single-parent households are just as normal as two-parent households. However, despite that, there is still so much stigma associated with being a single parent.Being a parent is already a daunting task, and when you have to go at it (mostly) alone, it is that much more difficult.
Single parenting isn’t for the weak. If you’ve ever met a single mom or single dad, then you already know how strong they must be to complete their job.
Even despite all of that- I doubt you have ever heard them complain very much because, for the most part, they continue pushing forward, no matter what struggles to come their way.Here are 9 things single parents won’t say out loud.They might not say it- but they are exhausted, overworked, and overwhelmed. While being single can be tricky enough, it’s made even more tricky when you are solely responsible for a child as well, top of that.There are times when they haven’t had a moment of alone time in weeks.
And while a lot of parents call a babysitter, so they can go on a date or so they can go to an event, single parents call one, so they can take a nap all by themselves without having to worry.Nothing irks a single parent more than the old, “So, when are you going to start dating? You know you need more help raising those kids.” Or, “I bet it’s SOOOOO hard being a single parent. Don’t you want a boyfriend?” So, please stop this, like NOW.Being a single parent can be a lonely endeavor.
While they may crave company, who has time to date when you have kids, and you are raising them alone?Single parents may not ask for your help all of the time, or possibly not ever, but they most definitely need it. So, if you know a single parent, and you can help them in any way, please
